Cilantro Lime Rice has always been a favorite of mine, and I wanted to make a simple and tasty recreation in the rice cooker. I love adding cilantro lime rice to my burrito bowls, or serving it up with some refried beans for Taco Tuesday.

What I love about this recipe is that everything comes together in the rice cooker – no need to get any bowls or pots involved. In just about 30 minutes (or whatever setting your rice cooker has for white rice), you can have a super flavorful and simple side dish for your next fiesta!

What’s The Best Rice Cooker to Buy?

We have this fantastic Hamilton Beach rice cooker that is super inexpensive and has lasted us years and years, I’ve been very happy with it! It gets weekly use, and is great for cooking rice, lentils, and quinoa in the rice cooker.  But I’d love to upgrade to this Zojirushi model eventually, it’s THE Cadillac of rice cookers. Our extended family has it, and it is one fantastic appliance. And it has a great feature which keeps the rice warm on the counter, so you can enjoy it all day.

One Pot Rice Cooker Recipes For the Win!

This steamed cilantro lime rice recipe is the perfect one-pot lunch or dinner!  I love a good One Pot Meal, especially during these summer months when I don’t want a lot of burners going at once. Cooking everything in one pot is one of my favorite ways to get a meal on the table fast!  And one pot makes cleaning up a breeze. The rice cooker does all the work for you, so you can focus on other kitchen prep while the food cooks. One Pot meals are awesome for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – check out my link here to see other healthy one pot meals that are ready in no time!

How To Make Cilantro Lime Rice in a Rice Cooker

  1. Rinse the rice under cold water, until the water runs clear. Add the rice to the pot, along with half the lime juice, the garlic powder, and the water.
  2. Set rice cooker to ‘White Rice’ or ‘Steam’ or whatever mode you would use for white rice (may vary by model, mine says ‘White Rice’ and usually takes about 30-40 minutes).
  3. Once the rice has finished cooking, fluff with a fork. Add the remainder of the lime juice and the chopped cilantro, and stir well with a rice paddle to combine.
  4. Serve with beans, in a burrito or burrito bowl, or with tacos – enjoy!
