It’s always easy for me to find a meat and vegetable to make for dinner.  Sides are tough for me.  Nothing ever sounds good and my kids always complain.  I had some extra cilantro and wanted to use it before it went bad and came up with the cilantro lime rice.  It really brings some flavor into a plain meal.  We love Mexican food and cilantro at my house and we ate this up.
