Chipotle's Cilantro Lime Rice

After some trial and error, I finally have perfected Chipotle's Cilantro Lime Rice. This is a much cheaper alternative to actually going there to eat ecspecially if you grow your own cilantro like I do! Their rice is to me one of the best fast food dishes ever! Enjoy!

Chipotle's Cilantro Lime Rice

1 cup long grain rice (I use Jasmine rice)
2 Tbs olive oil or butter
1 tsp kosher salt
2 cups water
2 Tbs fresh chopped cilantro (or more if you want)
1 Tbs fresh lime juice

In a sauce pan heat olive oil. Add rice and salt. Stir until fragrant. Add water and bring to a boil. Place a tight lid on pan and turn down the heat to low. Cook for 20 minutes. Take off burner and add cilantro. Place lid back on and let sit for 5 minutes. Take off the lid and fluff rice while adding the lime juice. Serve.

This recipe is linked to Foodies Fridays and Frugal Fridays.


  1. Seems a simple and nice dish!

  2. Do you know I've never eaten at Chipotle?!? Your rice sounds wonderful though - I have everything to make it except the cilantro - but I do have some cilantro frozen in the freezer, as long as it's not freezer burned!

  3. I've never eaten at Chipotles but this sounds fantastic! Definitely going to make this!

  4. wonder if i could make rice in my rice maker and then just add the cilantro and lime at end??


Thanks so much for your encouraging words!
