Chili Lime Rice (Vegan, Gluten Free)

My husband made this Chili Lime Rice the other day.  He shared a picture in the Facebook group I run and everyone asked for a recipe.  So he made it again and measured everything out this time.

This recipe is for spicy food lovers!  The first time he added black beans, but forgot to add them the second time, so feel free to add black beans to this if you like.


Chili Lime Rice


This flavorful rice is vegan and gluten free.  He used green Serrano chili peppers, but you can really use any peppers you like.  If you want a little heat, but not too much, you can remove the seeds from the peppers after roasting.

We like to top this with sliced avocado.  You can also add my vegan sour cream if you like.  Yum!
