Picture of Cilantro Chili Lime Brown Rice With Corn

We love Mexican style dishes and have tinkered around with various rice recipes to go along with burritos and tacos and the like, before finally hitting on this quick, clean, and simple version that we absolutely love, and think others will enjoy, too!

This is a great summer rice dish, and an easy camping meal or side dish, with canned corn.

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients

2 1/2 cups brown rice, cooked according to directions

3 -4 tablespoons lime juice (start with 3)

2 tablespoons cilantro

1 tablespoon chili powder

1/2 cup frozen corn

salt and pepper to taste

Optional: top with diced tomatoes or tomato salsa

Step 2: Add Lime Juice

Add 3 tablespoons lime juice, or the juice of two limes, to your cooked rice, and mix thoroughly. (For those of you who love your lime, throw in a 4th tablespoon - our gang maxes out at 3)

Step 3: Add Corn

We like adding frozen corn - 1/2 to 3/4 cup - mixing and then putting the whole thing back on the stove, covered, to sort of steam the frozen corn for a few minutes.

Step 4: Add Seasonings

Add your chili powder, cilantro and a little salt and pepper to taste.

Step 5: Serve Alone or Topped With Tomatoes or Salsa

I love it topped with fresh tomato salsa, but it's also fine as is. You can also throw in a dash of hot sauce.

Serve as a side to tacos,burritos, enchiladas or taquitos.
