Last weekend, I went to a birthday party with Chipotle catered foods. I just couldn’t get enough of the cilantro lime rice, topped with juicy chicken, steak and salsa. The next day, instead of going to Chipotle and got my fix, I decided to just make the rice at home.
As the name suggested, this steamed white rice is flavored with lots of fresh cilantro leaves, zesty lime juice, butter and salt. I dressed up the flavors with some chicken broth. I also love it that everything is cooked in one pot, so there is only one utensil to wash.
The end result is absolutely delicious, refreshing and appetizing. The rice is moist, with the wonderful aromas of the cilantro. I served the cilantro lime rice with sizzling chicken fajita and tortilla. Making Mexican food is a breeze and we all enjoyed the meal very much!
