This is the perfect side dish for when you are looking for something a little bit different than plain rice. The cilantro and lime add a kick of flavor, and the queso fresco adds a bit of salty, creamy goodness. This is especially good served alongside a Mexican or Tex-Mex meal. Very little effort for a lot of flavor!!
