Easy Lime Cilantro Rice


"I was inspired to create this recipe after a major retailer stopped carrying a favorite boxed version of cilantro lime rice mix, leaving a hole in my rotation of meals. My version is budget friendly and has a fresher taste and aroma than the boxed version, and I hope others enjoy it."

  • Ready In

  1. Combine cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, onion powder, parsley, garlic powder, ground cumin, and chili powder in a bowl.
  2. Bring water to a boil over high heat. Stir in rice and salt. Reduce heat and cover; simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in cilantro mixture and Mexican-style corn; simmer over low heat, covered, until corn is heated through, about 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You may process the cilantro lime mixture in a blender; this will make your rice green.
  • Stir in half of a drained can of Green Giant® Mexicorn® for added flavor.
