Cilantro Lime Rice

Cilantro Lime Rice from Chipotle Mexican Grill

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil or butter
  • 2 tsp. fresh cilantro coarsely chopped
  • 2/3 cup white basmati rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Lime
In a 2-quart heavy saucepan, heat oil or butter over low heat, stirring occasionally until melted. 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 25 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork.  Before serving stir in cilantro.
Basmati is a long-grained rice, with a fine texture. It can be found in Middle Eastern and India markets, as well as some supermarkets.
The source of this recipe is attributed to Chipolte’s Executive Chef (and CEO), Steve Ellis.
