  1. “…the mixture of rice, lime juice, and veggies…”There’s no lime juice mentioned in the ingredients. How much is needed?

  2. Is that 3 cups of cooked rice, or 3 cups of rice (raw then cooked)? I’m thinking it’s 3 cups of cooked rice.

      1. I 4hink thie sounds amazing and am making it for a get together…. how do you determine the akount of rice before it is cooked

        1. It is a 1:2 ratio. Meaning if you need 3 cups of cooked rice, then you would start with 1.5 cups of uncooked rice.

    1. It didn’t. If you still have some frozen, you might try to add a little more olive oil and lime juice once it defrosts. Let me know if that helps.
