Cilantro-Lime Rice

This rice is similar to that you'll find at many mexican chains (think cafe rio or chipotle). It has great flavor.  I especially love it with honey-lime chicken enchiladas or cafe sweet rio pork

2 c. water
1 Tbs.  butter
1 c. long-grain white rice
1 tsp. lime zest
2 Tbs. fresh lime juice
1/2 c. chopped cilantro

    Bring water to boil. stir in butter and rice. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 20 minutes. Combine zest, cilantro and lime juice and stir into rice just before serving.
