Chile Cilantro Lemon Rice

1c long grain white rice
½t Trader Joe's Chile Lime seasoning
1±T butter
1 lemon - zest & juice (I didn't have lime :-( ) 
2c water
½-1c finely chopped cilantro leaves and stems

Sauté the rice, seasoning and butter to wake up the flavors and brown the rice a bit.  Add the zest and water.  Simmer, steam and when the water is almost evaporated, add the lemon juice and cilantro.  Cover and remove from the heat.  Let stand a while before serving.  Shown here with a simple green salad (with mango-chipolte dressing) and a pan-seared, butter, white wine and A-1 sautéed steak. . .Lin
