With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner I have been thinking about Mexican cuisine a lot and a common side for Mexican themed meals is rice. I know what you are thinking but rice does not have to be boring since you can easily jazz it up with fresh ingredients with one of my favourites being cilantro and lime rice! I make cilantro and lime rice fairly often but I recently had an idea, why not add some creamy avocado to the rice? Avocado is the perfect complement to the cilantro and lime flavours, it's nice and green, light, fresh and it really takes the rice to a whole new level! This avocado cilantro lime rice is an amazing side to any meal and it also works really well in things like burritos, salad bowls, casseroles, etc. The next time you are going for rice as a side dish skip that Chipotle copycat cilantro and lime rice and go for this avocado cilantro lime rice!
