Chipotle Copycat Lime Rice Recipe

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Allan Lee

This is a copycat recipe I found for this amazing rice, it works perfectly with a nice savory pulled pork that I use for making burritos. But it really is good enough to have on it's own. *edit* I will have to revisit this recipe soon and come up with more precise measurements and possibly using more generic rice.

I was waiting in line one day at Chipotles several years ago, and watched them make the rice. A huge bowl of cooked rice was tossed with a big spoon while a handful of salt, a squeze bottle of fresh lime juice and double handful of chopped cilantro was added. Pretty simple...

Directions

  1. In a 2-quart heavy saucepan, heat oil or butter over low heat, stirring occasionally until melted.
  2. Add rice and lime juice, stir for 1 minute.
  3. Add water and salt, bring to a full rolling boil.(Some people have had success with 1 cup of water, but when I've made it with 2 it worked for me).
  4. At boiling, cover, turn down to simmer over low heat until rice is tender and the water is absorbed, about 25 minutes.
  5. Add in the cilantro and fluff rice with a fork.
