There are two ways to prepare the rice. You can cook it based on the instructions on the box or you can use a rice steamer.
Rice Steamer instructions: Use equal amounts of rice to water. I added 2 1/2 cups of Minute® Rice and I added 2 1/2 cups of water.
Sprinkled with salt.
I added 3 bay leaves (I plan to add 5 next time because I love the flavor that sets in when it's done)
Once the rice is finished remove the bay leaves.
Chop a 1/2 bushel of fresh cilantro. Do this as thick or as fine as you like. We did a medium chop.
Soften (by rolling the lime on the counter before you cut it in half) then squeeze the juice from each lime into the cooked rice.
Mix in the chopped cilantro
Add salt to taste and mix it all together.
