Living in New York is a lot different than living in Arizona. There aren't grocery stores on every corner. Green trees are everywhere which makes for beautiful scenery. All of the houses are old. And there are only 3 mexican restaurants in our city! 3. What's up with that? These New Yorkers are into Italian. Whatev. And the hubby and I LOVE mexican food. So, we had to take matters into our own hands and make our own. We did the whole Cafe Rio spread for Sunday dinner and it was heavenly. Not that I think Cafe Rio is real mexican food, cause I don't. But it did the job. We have posted most of the Cafe Rio recipes on here except the rice. So here you go!
4 cups water
2 cups rice
4 tsp. chicken bouillon or 4 cubes
1 can green chilies
4 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 onion, chopped finely
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped finely
3/4 tsp. salt
1 Tbs. butter
juice of 2 limes
Bring water to a boil. Add all ingredients and stir. Cover and simmer on medium for 30 minutes or until rice is tender.
