Description

This is a Chipotle Copycat Cilantro Lime White Rice. Cilantro is obviously one of my favorite herbs to garnish with. To make Chipotle’s Cilantro Lime Rice, you will need Basmati or a long rice, cilantro, limes, and salt.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup basmati rice or long grained rice
  • 1-2 cups of water (Depending on your rice label)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest
  • Juice of ½ lime

Instructions

If using pressure cooker:

  1. First things first: read your rice instructions and go with the amount of water you are supposed to use according to your rice! Every different type of rice absorbs differently so this is very important.
  2. In a pressure cooker, add the rice, water and salt. Pressure cook on low for 12 minutes or hit the rice button. Let the pot naturally release for best quality, or you can quick release.
  3. Stir the rice and add the lime zest, lime juice, and cilantro. Salt to taste.

If using stovetop:

  1. First things first: read your rice instructions and go with the amount of water you are supposed to use according to your rice! Every different type of rice absorbs differently so this is very important.
  2. Cook 1 cup of rice according to package instructions. Bring 1-2 cups of water (look at the rice label) to a boil and then pour in the rice. Stir and lower heat to medium low and cook covered for 15 minutes, until all the water has evaporated. Stir in cilantro, lime zest and lime juice. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Make sure you read the amount of water and the time needed to cook you rice according to package instructions. Every different type of rice absorbs differently so this is very important.
