Cilantro Lime Rice

This tastes just like the rice at Cafe Rio and Chipotle, super yummy. It's so good you could serve it as a side dish or as a filling in tacos and burritos.

1 c. uncooked long grain rice (I like Jasmine)
1 Tbs. butter
2 medium cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp fresh squeezed lime juice
2 1/4 c. water
1 chicken bouillon cube
1 Tbs. fresh squeezed lime juice
2 tsp sugar
3 Tbs. fresh chopped cilantro

In a medium saucepan combine the rice, butter, garlic, 1 tsp of lime juice, and water. With your fingers, gently break apart bouillon cube and stir into rice and water mixture. Bring to a boil and cover with lid. Turn heat down to medium low and let cook for apprx. 20 minutes; remove from heat. In a small bowl combine 1 Tbs lime juice, sugar, and cilantro. Pour over hot rice and mix in as you fluff with a fork.
