Chipotle Copycat: Lime & Cilantro Rice

Did you know that when I was pregnant with Jack I couldn’t stand Chipotle? The smell even bothered me. Once Jack was born not only did I start eating Chipotle again but I wanted it all the time. 
To avoid breaking the bank by eating Chipotle everyday, I thought I’d recreate one of their signature ingredients, the cilantro lime rice. From the first bite, J proclaimed this recipe was delicious and tasted just like the real deal. I adapted the recipe from Chipotle Fan.
What You Need:
-1 cup of white rice 
-2 tsp fresh cilantro
-Juice of half a lime 
-1/2 tsp salt

What To Do:
1. Cook the rice according to directions on the box or bag. 
2. While the rice is cooking, finely chop the cilantro and squeeze out the juice from half a lime. 
3. Mix lime juice, salt, and cilantro together.
4. Slowly pour the liquid mixture over the rice while stirring and fluffing the rice with a fork. 
5. Add to burritos, tacos, salads, etc! I made burritos and even wrapped them in foil just like Chipotle.
