Copycat Chipotle Chorizo Bowl With Cilantro-Lime Rice

READY IN: 1hr 20mins




  • Make rice:
  • In medium pot (about 2 to 3 quarts) combine water, rice, salt, and bay leaf. Boil, uncovered until steam holes appear in rice, and grains on surface appear dry, about 8 minutes. Cover pot and cook rice over lowest heat 15 minutes more, until moisture is mostly absorbed. Remove pot from heat and cover. Let rice stand for 5 minutes undisturbed Transfer rice to a medium bowl fluff with a fork, stir in lime juice and cilantro.
  • While rice cooks make Chorizo:
  • In a large bowl stir together the Chorizo Seasoning ingredients. Thoroughly mix the seasoning mix with the ground pork until well combined (do not overmix).
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork mixture to the pan. Use a wooden spoon to occasionally break the meat up as it browns. Cook until meat has browned all over, and is fully cooked, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vinegar. Serve chorizo over cilantro- lime rice.
