Lime-Cilantro Rice with Pineapple

Lime-Cilantro Rice with Pineapple
from Our Best Bites

1 cup white rice, cooked
2 TB real butter
Juice from 1 large lime
1 small can crushed pineapple, drained

½ - ¾ cup chopped fresh cilantro
Salt and pepper to taste


1. Cook rice.
2. As soon as it’s done, toss in the butter and stir to melt. Add lime juice, pineapple, and cilantro. Stir to combine, and then add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
* You’ll want to serve this right away, if you don’t, the flavors tend to mellow a bit and you’ll probably need to add more lime juice because the rice kind of sucks it up. If you’re not quite ready to eat when your rice finishes cooking, just toss in the butter and keep a lid on it so it stays warm. Then right before you serve it, toss it all together.
