My favorite way make to rice. This Cilantro Lime Rice is a must for taco night and the perfect recipe for making favorite rice dish at home.
When I was pregnant with my 2nd baby all I wanted to eat was Chipotle, like all the time!
Those flavors were on my mind all the time and since Chipotle wasn't open for breakfast I had to make my own at home.
This recipe is NOT a exact duplicate for Chipotle's rice but it's my favorite way to make it and it's so simple and easy to make.
How to make Cilantro Lime Rice:
This rice is really simple to make. Cook your rice according to the instructions. Once the rice is done add your other ingredients and mix up. Then you are ready to serve!
- Rice (I used jasmine rice)
- Oil (I used vegetable oil but any flavorless oil will work)
- The juice from a lime
What are Flavorless Oils?
- Canola oil
- Corn oil
- Peanut oil
- Vegetable Oil
Step One: First prepare rice according to directions.
- Tip: Since some rice can take longer to cook or call for water then others I suggest to just look at your bag and follow those directions.
Step Two: Then once your rice is cooked add salt, oil, chopped cilantro, and lime juice. Stir together until well combined.
How Much Juice is on One Lime:
You should be able to get about 2 tablespoons of juice from one lime.
How to Juice a Lime:
To make sure you get the most juice from your lime you can try rolling it on the counter before slicing it. You could even place it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.
Once your lime is ready to be juiced start by cutting it in half. You can use a manual or electric juice. If you don't have those tools just use your hands or even a pair of tongs to squeeze out all the juice.
Do you use the stems of Cilantro?
I will chop all of the leaves of cilantro, but add a few stems. I will finely chop the stems as they have great flavor and it really adds to the rice.
