Cilantro Lime Rice for a Crowd

heartysmarty281 views

We use this recipe for lime rice in a few different dishes including Fiesta Vegetable Bowls, Seasoned Beans and Rice, and (our favorite) Cafe Rio Salads for a Crowd (recipe coming soon!) There’s something about adding a hint of lime and chicken broth to plain white rice that makes it so delicious. Another fantastic benefit of of this dish is it is really inexpensive (about $5 to feed 16 people 2/3-cup serving) and naturally gluten-free. Enjoy!
