    Good idea, I'll try putting more lime in at the end next time. Yum.

    I make this all the time with just about the same recipe, except I also squeeze a little fresh lime in it when I add the cilantro at the end, gives it that zing. Also I use water:rice at 2:1 ratio. We like it much better than your typical "mexican rice". And in our house Basmati is the only way to go! Great post.

    You can also use olive or veg oil for frying, but I think the butter is more delicious!
