      Not sure what happened, but it was a sticky disaster. I followed the directions exactly. I was pretty disappointed. Might try again just to make sure I didn't mess something up.

      Delicious and easy side dish, which my daughter insisted tasted nearly exactly like Chipotle's. Next time I might add a bit more cilantro for personal preference. This paired perfectly with Cilantro Butter Tilapia Skillet Fillets

      This is a pretty good copycat recipe. I added a little extra cilantro to mine though, probably closer to 3 teaspoons. I also had to use about 2 ounces more water to get the rice to a desired consistency. Overall, pretty good! I served it on steak tacos, using Spicy Lime-Cilantro Marinated Flank Steak as the marinade & as a "green sauce" on the tacos. Also topped with queso fresco & baby arugula. Delish!
