Lime Rice

I made Kristi's Honey lime enchiladas the other night with this rice (and some beans) and it was a great combo, and if i had a little more time it would have been good with some fresh Pico de Gallo, very Cafe Rio style. This makes a lot of rice, so i did half the recipe, and with the enchiladas i did corn tortillas and it was really good.

Lime Rice

in a sauce pan, saute

2 Tbs butter
1 yellow onion chopped
4 cloves garlic minced

In a large pot bring to boil:
6 2/3 cups water
8 tsp chicken bouillon
1/2 bunch of cilantro ( i didn't have any and so i didn't put this in)
2 tsp cumin
2 small cans diced green chili's
1 Tbs lime juice
1/2 tsp pepper

Add three cups of rice, and the butter/garlic/onion mixture. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 min. (stir occasionally so rice doesn't stick to bottom of pan)
