Cilantro Lime Rice

we're making

If you catch yourself behind me in line at Chipotle, you are going to hear me ask for extra cilantro rice in my burrito bowl.

You will need...

Water Basmati brown rice  Kosher salt Lime zest Lime juice Chopped cilantro


It's amazing!

My cilantro rice recipe is a fantastic family-style side dish perfect for taco night, barbecues, or Tex-Mex-inspired dinners!

Flour Bowl

Bring the water to a boil in a small pot on the stove top. Reduce heat and add the rice and salt.


Cover and simmer on low for 20 minutes or until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed.


Zest half of a lime into the rice. Add lime zest, lime juice and cilantro to the rice and stir.


There you have it, cilantro lime rice to serve with all of your favorite dishes. Enjoy!
