      This is one of the few recipes that calls for cooked rice and is an awesome way to use leftovers. I used the white and brown rice from my previous chinese dinner and made it into this for my burritos. Chinese to mexican in 5 minutes. I never throw away leftovers so I'm always looking for ways to change them into something new. I added this to my burritos. I still have a little leftover. I plan on adding it to the chicken tortilla soup I made just before serving. The lime and cilantro are supposed to garnishes anyway. As you can see...I LOVE THIS IDEA and we do not waste food :)

      This is my preferred way of making rice, although I use brown rice. What's great about this recipe is that it goes great with Latin American AND Asian foods! It's especially good with any bean dish you may have, or inside a burrito. What are you waiting for? Make it- you won't be able to get enough :)

      What a versatile, flavorful rice! I'm not usually a huge fan of rice, but this really adds a lot of flavor to anything from mexican to chinese dishes.
