I usually cook this dish when I make my Barbacoa Beef, but it pairs well with so many other dishes. The lime zest and lime juice take this the rice to a whole new level. It’s amazing and sure to be a hit with your family!


  • 1 cup Jasmine rice, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups cold water
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 tsp. light cooking oil, I used Canola
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place rice into a pot and top with water and oil. Heat to boiling over high heat, do not remove lid.  Once boiling, turn the heat to low, and simmer 15 min.
  2. Once rice is cooked add lime juice and zest and fluff with a fork.


Make sure you fluff your rice with a fork.  When you stir the rice it turns to mush.
