Chipotle Copycat Lime Rice Recipe

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.

Preparation time

  • Prep Time 5 mins
  • Total Time 30 mins
  • Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil or 1 teaspoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons fresh cilantro
  • 2/3 cup white basmati rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 lime

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.
