Being in another country that does not sell Chipotle, I find myself missing one food from America: Chipotle. Craving my daily fix of cilantro-lime rice, I decided to share a copy-cat Chipotle-style cilantro lime rice recipe that I have made miles and miles away from home. (Because we al know, Chipotle isn't Chipotle without the glorious rice!)
If I do say so myself, this recipe fulfilled my irrational craving & I can guarantee I will be making it again (as my craving for Chipotle intensifies as the days go by)!
Here's a recipe that hopefully helps another Chipotle-lover!
- 1 cup Rice
- Lime Juice ( 3/4 Lime)
- 2 Cups of Water
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 tbsp ( finely chopped cilantro )
- 3 tsp vegetable oil
1) Place 2 tsp of Vegetable oil, Cilantro and Lime Juice in a small bowl and mix.
2) Either use a rice cooker or cook rice on the stove top. Add 1 cup of rice + 2 Cups of Water add salt and 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Mix and cook.
3) Mix Rice and Cilantro Lime Mixture in a bowl.
