Chipotle"s Cilantro Lime Rice


  • 2 cups white rice
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 4 cups water (or appropriate amount for your rice cooker)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 6 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Put rice, water, 2 teaspoons oil, and salt into heavy pot.  Bring to boil, cover, reduce heat to low, and cook 15-20 minutes or until rice is tender.  (Or cook rice in rice cooker following manufacturer’s directions.  You can use any type of rice, but adjust the water and cooking time appropriately.)  
  2. Combine cilantro, lime juice, and remaining oil in medium bowl.  Add rice and toss until completely mixed.  


I love Chipotle’s rice.  Who doesn’t?  This is a great recipe from Skinny Taste that comes pretty close!
