Cilantro Lime Rice
This is my version of Chipotle's famous Cilantro Lime Rice. It's an excellent side dish choice for a wide variety of entrées and so easy to make at home.
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 ½ cup long grain white rice like jasmine or basmati
- ½ teaspoon salt optional
- 3 cups low sodium chicken or vegetable broth
- 1 fresh lime juiced
- ¾ cup roughly chopped cilantro or to taste
Heat the vegetable oil in a 12-inch skillet over MEDIUM heat. Add the rice and season with the salt, if using. Cook, stirring frequently, until lightly toasted, about 4 or 5 minutes. Add the broth and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to LOW, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed.
Remove the pan from the heat and stir and fluff the rice with a spoon. Stir in the lime juice and cilantro and serve.
