I have so many recipes of cilantro lime rice pinned to my Pinterest boards for months now! In this version of cilantro lime rice, I’m actually using a Martha Stewart recipe.
I love the idea of cilantro lime flavored rice…cilantro and lime taste so good together!
There’s also garlic in this recipe! I love garlic so I always end up adding a few extra cloves to every recipe I use!
All the flavors in this recipe is totally spot on! But what I didn’t really love about this recipe was that the rice was a bit too mushy for my liking. Next time I make this, I cook the rice the way I normally do. So I would toast the rice in some butter and garlic and then add the water and let the water absorb the rice.
Cilantro lime rice goes very well with cheese enchiladas! :)
Have you tried making cilantro lime rice before? If so, let me know what your favorite recipe is! Hope you’re having a beautiful day!
Cilantro Lime Rice (via Martha Stewart)
- 1 cup long-grain white rice
- 1 1/2 cups water
- Coarse salt
- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 garlic clove
- In a medium saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil. Add rice and 1/4 teaspoon salt; cover, and reduce to a simmer. Cook until water is absorbed and rice is just tender, 16 to 18 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a blender, combine cilantro, lime juice, oil, garlic, and 2 tablespoons water; blend until smooth. Stir into cooked rice, and fluff with a fork.
Hi guys! I love enchiladas.
Whenever I get the chance, this is one of the things I ask my boyfriend to make when I’m not hogging the kitchen :)
My boyfriend makes the best enchiladas! They are my favorite because they are so easy to put together and there’s no baking like most enchiladas recipes call for, so in under 10 minutes my enchiladas cravings are satisfied! Yay me!
Trust me, these will be the quickest enchiladas you’ll ever make!
You can fill these enchiladas with anything your heart desires and it’s a total customizable dish! I prefer just good old regular cheese enchiladas. To add some color and veggies to my enchiladas, I chopped up some fresh cilantro and green onions.
In a large skillet, warm your favorite enchilada sauce. Toss a tortilla in there and fully submerge it in the enchilada sauce making sure that the tortilla is fully coated in sauce.
After you’ve swished your tortilla around in the sauce for about 2 minutes, scoop your tortillas onto a plate. Toss whatever you want in your enchiladas near the middle of the tortilla, then quickly fold the outer edges in. And by quickly, I mean fast because it’ll be hot! Sensitive fingers beware!
And voilà! Cheesy goodness! You can sprinkle some more cheese and some fresh greens on top (in my case, cilantro and green onions). I also paired this with cilantro lime rice (will blog on this soon!).
Now wasn’t that quick? :)
Wishing you a wonderful day! Feel free to share your favorite enchiladas recipe below!

The inspiration for these nachos actually came from Yard House. I would have to say that Yard House and Chili’s (endless chips and salsa + margs! = the best!) are two of my favorite places for happy hour! My favorite shareable munchies from Yard House are their chicken nachos. If anyone knows the recipe for their chicken nachos, please please please let me know!
I tried re-creating it but it kind of just became my own strange concoction… This is so simple and a great last-minute make for emergencies!
