Chipotle Restaurant Inspired Cilantro Lime Rice

Cilantro lime rice is one of the staple ingredients of Chipotle's menu. The savory hint of cilantro and the refreshing citrus of the lime really round out any meal. I like serving this with slightly spicier dishes to help create a nice balance. You can even use this as a filling to your burritos just like Chipotle does.

Full time 10-15 minutes (not including rice cooking time)
Serves 4-6

You will need:

3 cups cooked white rice, drained well
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
1 tbsp fresh lime juice or the juice of 1-2 limes
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Let us begin:

In a preheat pot place drained white rice. And add in salt and ground black pepper.

Stir well to combine and allow the rice to cook 1-2 minutes over medium heat, stirring once or twice.

Add in lime juice and cilantro.

Allow half of the lime juice to cook off over the medium heat, approximately 3-4 minutes. Stirring often to prevent sticking.

Serve and cheers!
