This Cilantro Lime Rice turns boring into fabulous. Loads with fresh flavor for a wonderful side dish to any Mexican meal.
CILANTRO LIME BROWN RICE
Ever since I fist tried Chipotle’s infamous cilantro lime rice I knew I had to make it at home too. It’s super to use in so many ways. Plain as a side or loaded up with all kinds of toppings like in this rice bowl.
It is such an easy way to kick some excitement into just plain ole rice. If you want an sen more robust flavor, cook the rice in chicken or vegetable broth instead of water.
It’s fantastic as a side to this Barbacoa recipe too. Another chipotle copycat recipe win!
