DIY: CAFE RIO SALAD RECIPE
Being a die hard Cafe Rio fan, I was skeptical of this taste-a-like Cafe Rio Recipe. Although it isn't the "real thing", it has become a family favorite. Your taste buds, and little buds won't be disappointed!
Cafe Rio Salad Recipe
Cilantro Lime Rice:
Bring to a boil. Cover and cook 15-20 minutes until rice is tender.
Remove from heat. In a small bowl, combine lime juice, sugar, and cilantro.
BTW: This is what tomatillos look like (I hardly ever cook Mexican food so I had to do some research before preparing this meal.) Just a helpful hint in case you didn't know :)
Add beans, tomato juice and salt. Continually stir until heated through.
Just before serving, stir in cilantro.
Right before serving get a griddle out, or frying pan and heat up some tortillas. We recommend using uncooked flour tortillas. You can find these at Walmart or any local grocery store. This will be the base of your Cafe Rio Salad.
Now the fun part... I always layer my salad in the following order
4. Black Beans
