White rice is given a Mexican flair with added cilantro, lime and queso fresco.

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!!
- 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
- ¼ cup chopped cilantro
- juice of 1 lime
- 4 oz crumbled queso fresco
- Cook the rice according to the package directions.
- Once cooked, stir in the cilantro and lime. Stir in the queso fresco. Season to taste with salt.
