Recipe by Engrossed

Lime juice, cumin and cilantro are a magical zesty combination. Grilled chicken breast, ground beef or fried eggs go great over this. Use vegetable bouillon cube for Vegetarian.

Top Review by pink cook

The Southwest veggies and the lemon-cilantro brown rice give an excellent flavor to this dish. We stir the veggies in the rice, served it with grilled chicken breasts and added diced avocado and sour cream on top. It is healthy and delicious. Good idea Chef, and good luck in the contest.
