I always need a new side dish to eat with our mexican themed meals, and this one was perfect! I have made Garlic Rice ( on this blog) soooo many times because I love it, but I wanted something different – it tasted Delicious! Thank you Pinterest ! Again!!!
2 cups freshly cooked rice, Jasmine is my choice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon sauce from canned chipotle peppers
kosher salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
Optional: minced fresh cilantro or parsley for garnish and fresh lime wedge for serving
* I added peas that I had in the fridge too, they were so good!
Cook the rice according to package directions. While the rice is cooking, combine the olive oil, lime juice and chipotle sauce in a small jar and shake to combine. Once the rice is cooked, while it is still steaming hot, place it in a large mixing bowl. Fluff with a fork and then drizzle with the lime sauce. Toss well to thoroughly coat and separate the rice. Taste and season generously with salt and pepper. Garnish with cilantro or parsley and serve with a wedge of lime for extra tang. Enjoy!
