Are you looking for a simple rice dish that can serve as a meal? Then look no further than this Cilantro Lime Rice with Black Beans.
This dish can be enjoyed on it’s own as it is packed full of protein and flavors that you’re sure to enjoy.
Traditionally this recipe is served with some fresh squeeze lime juice, today I had lemons on hand.
I’ve tried both methods and honestly, I can hardly tell the difference.
So i encourage you to try both lemons and limes and decide what flavor suits you most.
Also you want to make sure you are using “frozen corn” vs canned.
Canned just does not work well for this dish.
However, you can use fresh corn on the cob if you have on hand.
This dish can be served with just about any type of meal, Mexican or not.
Think pork, steak or fish type dishes.
I have provided some tasty options that would go really well alongside this rice dish.
