Santa Fe Lime Rice

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

I recently have been on the hunt for a couple of good yet simple Mexican rice recipes.  I’ve been looking for a good regular Mexican rice for a while. Recently, I wanted to also find a cilantro lime recipe.  I found this simple Santa Fe lime rice recipe from a cookbook called The Food Nanny Rescues Dinner by Liz Edmunds. I have shared a recipe previously from the Food Nanny.  It was the tuna noodle casserole

Anyway I loved the fact that with this Santa Fe lime rice recipe you put all the ingredients together and let the rice cook.  No extra steps.  I also liked that you could also do it in a rice cooker.  I love to use my rice cooker.  So either way, you can make this on the stove top or in a rice cooker.  I did the rice cooker method.  We loved this rice.  SO tasty.

It was just the right amount of flavor to it. It is not over powering and not under flavored where it tasted like regular rice.  I also love just throwing all the ingredients in the rice cooker, turning it on, and leaving it to cook.  Such a simple side dish to any Mexican meal.  I do think next time I may try to add a clove of garlic to it. Also, I may try to raise the cumin to 1/2 tsp and see how it works.

    1. This recipe does not include cilantro. I original was looking for a cilantro lime recipe but found this instead.

  5. Just FYI, I wanted to make this with a main dish that the lime/cumin wouldn’t quite mesh with, so I replaced it with some garlic/pepper seasoning and it was VERY yummy. It’s nice to know that it’s not only a great recipe, but very versatile too!

  7. Definitely adding this to my "to make" list. I love using the rice cooker, but never thought about doing any sort of flavored rice. Thanks for the suggestion!

  9. I have Liz Edmunds' cook book too and love this recipe (well, all of them are good—haven't found one we don't like yet!). Although, I've found that it still works if you leave all the butter out. A good healthier alternative. Check out our blog, we talk about Liz Edmunds a lot—we even have a section for her! (She was Lindsey's church leader when Lindsey was in high school)
