  • 2 fresh squeezed limes
  • 1 bushel fresh cilantro
  • 3 to 5 bay leaves
  • 2 1/2 cups Minute® Rice I used the brown rice but you can use your favorite
  • Salt to taste


  • 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.
  • Serve warm
