Cilantro Lime Rice

3 Cups Water                                       
3 Cups Rice
3 Chicken bullion cubes
1 tsp salt
¼ Cup lime juice
½ small onion
2 cloves garlic
½ bunch cilantro, remove stems
1 small can green chilies

Place water, rice, bullion cubes, and salt in pot. Bring to a boil. Meanwhile, place lime juice, onion, garlic, cilantro, and green chilies in a blender and puree. Stir into rice. Turn heat down and simmer rice, covered, for about 25 minutes or until rice is tender and fluffy.

*I actually used only 2 cups rice, 2 cups water, 2 bullion cubes, 1/2 t salt, 3 T lime juice, keeping the other ingredients the same.  This made a lot of rice, more than enough to feed a dozen people.  Next time I make it for my family, I'll cut it to a third.  Rivals Cafe Rio for sure! 

Adapted amounts:
1 c water
1 c rice
1 chicken bullion cube
1/2 t salt
2 T lime juice
1/4 small onion
1 clove garlic
1/4 bunch cilantro, remove stems
1/2 small can green chilies
