Taco Tuesday is here!! For me this is definately a favorite. I love, love, love anything with a Mexican/Tex-Mex flair, so a whole day devoted just to tacos sounds like a perfect day.
It is so much more than just tacos
I know tacos should be the star of Taco Tuesday but to me the sides are just as important (if not even more). I love the chips, the salsa, the queso (like this one) and of course the beans and rice.
Now I am all about the more traditional Red Rice but I am obsessed this Cilantro Lime Rice. It is AMAZING!
So much flavor in so little time
My sweet sis-in-law, Mary, was the first one who made this dish. We were having fajitas at their house and she whipped up this delicious rice. I loved how quick it came together and how delicious it was.
I am always so impressed by her. She is the mom of a 3 year old and almost 2 year old so anytime she can throw together a quick side and it is AMAZING I am all in.
PS…and it is pretty
The white rice is studded with bright green making it a beautiful dish all on it own. I also topped it with a bit if chili lime seasoning for a little extra color and fun.
You could also mix in some black beans if you wanted to make a super yummy side. You could also mix in some roasted red peppers and onions. Maybe even some chopped avocado. The possibilities are endless.
Let’s talk about the cilantro
Ok, I know some don’t like cilantro at all. If you just can’t handle it then use parsley if you want. The freshness of the herb really does help bring a great brightness to the dish. I do highly recommend the cilantro though.
