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 :)
