This recipe isn't exactly like the rice from Chipotle, but I'm gonna say it-I like it better. Shhhh-don't tell Chipotle on me. I still love them ;-)
Cilantro Lime Rice
recipe from Cooking Mexican Recipes
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup basmati rice
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups chicken broth, low sodium
3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
zest of one lime
Add the oil to a sauce pan then heat on medium heat. Add the garlic and the rice to the oil. Saute for about 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add the chicken broth, lime juice, and salt to your rice. Bring to a boil. Cover and cook on low for 15 minutes. (If you use a different type of rice-cook the rice according to package directions.)
When the rice is done, add lime zest and cilantro. Stir to mix and serve immediately.
We've had this rice in burritos, mixed in with shredded pork, along side fajitas, and more. It is a great side to any mexican inspired dish.
