Cilantro Lime Rice

My boys eat this by the pound! :)
It’s a copy-cat recipe for Chipotle’s rice (which my kids adore). It’s a keeper.

  • 1 cup extra long grain rice or basmati rice
  • 1/2 lime, juice of
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 tbsp. fresh chopped cilantro
  • 3 tsp. vegetable oil

In a small heavy pot, add rice, water, 1 tsp oil and salt (I just used my rice cooker, and it worked perfect). Boil on high until most of the water evaporates. When the water just skims the top of the rice, reduce to low and cover about 15 minutes. Shut off flame and keep covered an additional 5 minute.

In a medium bowl, combine chopped cilantro, lime juice, rice and remaining oil and toss until completely mixed.

Makes 4 servings.
