Recipe: Mexican Rice

Did I ever tell you about the most amazing Mexican rice recipe I have ever tasted?
I don't think I did.
Because I am a loving person, I will share this recipe with you today.
I am fairly certain that I got this recipe from homesicktexan.blogspot.com.

I love this rice because it has so much flavor.  
So much Spanish/Mexican rice that I have tasted is just too blah. It tastes more like chicken stock than anything remotely Spanish flavored.  
Not this rice.  
It has copious amounts of tomato, lime, and cilantro flavors bursting out of it. 
Mmmm, I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.
It is a perfect compliment to fajita's, taco's, quesadilla's, enchilada's, tamale's or any other Mexican dish you love!

You can practically see the flavor! 
Here is the recipe:
