    PianoCook's Note:

    I initially got part of this combination from a Food Network show, and have added a few things along the way. I call it "Spicy Rice" and my husband loves it. It makes normal steamed rice much less bland. The step by step process allows all the ingredients to cook into the rice. I usually take into consideration the entree I'm serving it with before I add the Cajun Seasoning. It's a personal preference. All ingredient amounts can be adjusted according to taste.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Heat butter in a medium to large saucepan until melted. Add rice and toast for a minute or so until the butter has been absorbed.
    2. 2
      Add cumin, Cajun seasoning (if desired), and 1/2 teaspoon of the lime juice. Continue to cook, tossing rice constantly so it does not burn, until the rice absorbs the lime juice. Add the remaining lime juice and the soy sauce and repeat this process.
    3. 3
      When all liquid has been absorbed, add the chicken broth. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly so rice does not stick together. Reduce to low, cover, and let simmer for 25-30 minutes, or until all of the chicken broth has been absorbed by the rice. Serve hot.

      This was even better than expected, especially since I had to do a change of plans at the last second. I was just starting to make this when I realized that I was out of long-grain white rice so I ended up using minute rice and following the microwave instructions (I know, gasp!)... but it honestly turned out really nice! In fact I would make this again as an easy Mexican side dish. I left out the Cajun seasoning and served this with chicken and cheese enchiladas tonight. Thanks for a great recipe! I think I'll probably make this again exactly the same or even in my rice cooker once I re-stock my rice supply :) Made for ZWT5.

      Loved it! Made with the cajun seasoning and it wasn't too spicy. Will be a favorite from now on. Thanks for posting PianoCook!

      This was good, but we didn't feel that it was very spicy and the lime flavor could have been a little stronger. Will definitely make this again and adjust the spices and lime juice to our likings. Made for Spring 2010 PAC.
