Gluten Free Simple Lime & Cilantro Rice Recipe
Over the years, I have created an arsenal of recipes that would indeed fool even the pickiest of the non-gluten-free eaters in the group. They are simple to prepare and completely kid-friendly.
Our biggest party successes have involved a “build-your-own” food bar so the kids can prepare their own plates. We have tried all types of these “build-your-own” parties – tacos, pizzas, panini sandwiches, sundaes, and cupcakes. The kids love being in control of picking whatever they want and I love that every child can find something to enjoy.
Build-Your-Own Taco Bar
Tacos are always kid-friendly and will serve a crowd. They please everyone: kids, adults, picky eaters, adventurous eaters, the health conscious, and the not-so-health-conscious.
Place the following ingredients in the order listed below in bowls on the table with serving utensils in each bowl:
Crispy taco shells
Soft corn tortillas
Chipotle Chicken (click here for recipe)
Lime & Cilantro Rice (recipe follows)
Pineapple Salsa (click here for recipe)
Corn (such as frozen roasted corn, thawed and drained)
Black beans (canned; drained and rinsed)
Sliced jalapeños (for those who like a little spice)
- 3 cups long-grain white rice
- 2 tablespoons salted butter

- 3 teaspoons lime zest
- ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro

Cook the rice according to the package directions. Fluff with a fork. Add the remaining ingredients. Stir well. Serve warm.
