cilantro lime rice

Love this side dish for any mexican entree you are making. It tastes just like Chipotle’s rice! We made our own burrito bowls with some barbacoa pork and back beans. It was delicious!  It’d be great in a burrito, taco, or a side to enchiladas.

Ingredients:

adapted from: skinnytaste.com 

1 c. brown rice

juice of 1 lime

2 1/2 c. water

1 tsp. salt

3 tbls. chopped fresh cilantro

2 tsp. vegetable, divided

Preparation:

In a small heavy pot, add rice, water, 1 tsp oil and salt. Boil on high until most of the water evaporates. When the water just skims the top of the rice, reduce to low and cover about 20 minutes. Shut off flame and keep covered an additional 5 minute.

In a medium bowl, combine chopped cilantro, lime juice, rice and remaining oil and toss until completely mixed.
