Cafe Rio Cilantro Lime Sweet Rice Recipe

Today I have an amazing recipe to share with you. Anyone who has ever lived in or visited Utah probably knows about Cafe Rio. It’s legendary here! They have THE BEST pulled pork salads and burritos, and of course, the most amazing sweet rice.
Ever.
Well, my friends, today I’m cracking their secret!
My friend Bethany gave me this recipe. I’ve made it several times, it’s delish. Enjoy!

Cafe Rio Cilantro Lime Sweet Rice

(for a printable version click HERE)
Ingredients:
½ Onion, chopped
2 Cloves minced garlic
1 Tablespoon butter
4C water
3C uncooked white rice
4 teaspoons chicken bouillon
1/2C chopped cilantro
1 Can diced green chilies
¾ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lime zest
2 Tablespoons lime juice
2 Tablespoons sugar

Directions:
Saute onion and garlic in butter until onion is soft. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. 

 
 
Cover and simmer on low for 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork, and enjoy!

It’s seriously so easy and sooo good. I made some of my cilantro lime chicken, cooked it up with red onion, corn I had leftover from dinner the night before, and bell peppers (that I chopped up and froze when they were on sale), and made some delicious fajita burrio thingies. MMMMMMmmmmmmm!

The pictures really don’t do it justice.
Bon Appetite!
