Chipotle's Restaurant Copycat Cilantro Lime Rice Recipe

Chipotle's Copycat Cilantro Lime Rice
This delicious, rice is a copycat version of the Cilantro Lime Rice served at the Chipotle's restaurants. It is an easy and low cost to make. I have also made with Jasmine rice and it works well too. Yummy with Mexican Food or a great side to any meat.


2 cups basmati rice
2 teaspoons cilantro, finely chopped
2 ¼ teaspoons salt, divided
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice


Bring to boil 8 cups water in a large cooking pot.
Add salt; stir.
Add rice; return to boil, boil uncovered 12 minutes.
Drain rice; rinse with hot water.
Pour rice into a serving bowl; while rice is still warm, stir in cilantro and lime juice; fluff with a fork.

Tips From Margielynn

Use 4 cups of water to one cup of rice, do not cover to cook.
Rinse rice in hot water after draining it.
