Creamy Cilantro Lime Avocado Rice with the option of mangoes and black beans is the most addictingly delicious Mexican side that makes every meal better or just add some chicken for a complete dinner!
Just when I thought I couldn’t love Cilantro Lime Rice Recipe any more, it became creamilicious. avocadolicious. can’t stop eatilicious.
Whenever I make Mexican food, AKA one of my most favorite food groups, I somehow always end up combining rice, avocados and black beans in one form or another. The texture of the rice, the heartiness of the beans, the creaminess of the avocados spiked with cilantro and lime is a mouthful I just can’t seem to get enough of. So in order to create the perfect bite, I combined these palate pleasing ingredients into one heavenly skillet of Creamy Cilantro Lime Avocado Rice.
To whip up this easy side, simply make your rice on the stove or in your slow cooker along with optional black beans if you like (and I do like). While your rice cooks, add your avocado, sour cream, milk, cilantro, jalapeno, onion, lime juice and a splash of seasonings to your blender to create your Creamy Avocado Blender Sauce.
Stir this velvety sauce into your cooked rice and you have the most unbelievably creamy rice that is savory, sweet and salty with a touch of tang all in one forkful.
This Cilantro Lime Avocado Rice is also very versatile – add some tomatoes and/or corn to simmer with your rice, stir in some cheese when its all done, or toss in some Chipotle Chicken or Chili Lime Chicken to create a complete meal. Wrap it all up in a taco, burrito or use as the base of taco salad. Any way you devour this Creamy Cilantro Lime Avocado Rice, you won’t want to stop.
And for those who live for mangoes like myself, the refreshing sweet mangoes compliment the creamy avocado lime perfectly.
creamilicious. avocadolicious. can’t stop eatilicious.
