Cilantro Lime Basmati Rice

This rice is much better if mixed with burritos, tacos, salads, etc, than eaten alone. It's really lime-y. The flavor reminds me of Chipotle's rice, which is delicious. It's fast, easy and adds a nice touch to your fiesta!


Cilantro-Lime Basmati Rice

1 t. vegetable oil
2/3 cup white basmati rice
1 cup water
1/2 t. salt
Juice of 1 lime (or 2-3 T. bottled)
2 t. fresh cilantro, minced

In a saucepan, heat oil over low heat. Add rice and lime juice, stir for 1 minute. Add water and salt, bring to a full rolling boil. At boiling, cover, turn down to simmer over low heat until rice is tender and the water is absorbed, about 20 min. Stir in minced cilantro and fluff with a fork.

This rice was sooo good - especially when we made it with fresh-squeezed lime juice. It really does taste like Chipotle's! We love it rolled up in burritos with your sweet pork recipe.
