My kiddos LOVE the cilantro-lime rice from Chipotle, and this copycat recipe is on point! With Cinco de Mayo being celebrated today, I thought it was time to share our family-favorite recipe. A simple method guarantees light and fluffy rice every single time. Don't you just love that about a recipe?
For perfect results, always use basmati rice for best results. And to keep it light and fluffy, never sticky, we're going to rinse and drain the rice thoroughly TWICE - once before cooking, and again immediately AFTER cooking. Fresh chopped cilantro, a squeeze of both fresh lemon and fresh lime juice, and this Chipotle Cilantro Lime Rice just POPS with fresh flavor!
