Rice and black beans (optional) simmered with jalapenos, green chilies and red onions spiked with cilantro and lime for the most satisfying Mexican rice you will want to serve with everything. Or with nothing because its ts cravilicious all by itself.
This Cilantro Lime Rice with Black Beans has long been a favorite staple at my house. Its the same rice in my beloved Honey Lime Chipotle Chicken Fajita Bowls and I’m using it again to enhance my Fiesta Ranch Chicken Burrito Bowls (coming soon), so I thought it was long past time for its very own post even though there are many versions all over the internet…
But none quite like this…
This Cilantro Lime Rice is delishified by the addition of black beans which cook right alongside the rice along with sauteed red onions, jalapenos, green chilies, garlic and a healthy dash of cumin.
Even with the encore cast, this rice is flavorful without being overwhelming so it pairs perfectly with any tacos, enchiladas, burritos, etc. you are serving up and also makes the ideal side because it requires so little hands-on prep time, but adds a lot to the meal.
One Pot Cilantro Lime Rice and Black Beans is waiting for you (in a totally non-creepy way) to elevate every Mexican meal to even more drool worthy heights.
