It was great as a side dish, but also great as a filler for a burrito!
The following receipe is from Closet Cooking and it is tweaked copycat/upgraded version of the lime rice in Chipotle's burritos.

I had to tweak it further as I used quick rice and have dried instead of fresh cilantro and the second time I made it did not have any fresh garlic so I had to use chopped garlic from a jar.

It was great as a side dish, but also great as a filler for a burrito!

This recipe make about 4 side dish servings (note, in some of the pics are from the second time I made this and I tripled the recipe)
