Cilantro Lime Rice Recipe

cilantro lime rice recipe


This recipe for Cilantro Lime Rice is quick, easy and delicious and tastes just like the rice at Chipotle restaurants.  I up the flavor by adding minced garlic to the rice while it’s cooking.  Cilantro Lime Rice with garlic is a great accompaniment to chicken or steak fajitas.  You can cut the preparation time in half if you use Minute Rice to make your Cilantro Lime Rice!


Cilantro Lime Rice with Garlic

4 Cups water

2 Cups long grain white rice, uncooked

2 Teaspoons minced garlic

1 Teaspoon salt


¼ Cup lime juice

¼ Cup Cilantro, fresh chopped


In medium saucepan, bring 4 cups water to a boil.  Add rice, minced garlic, and salt, stir well.  Reduce heat to simmer, cover and cook until the water is absorbed and rice is tender, about 15 minutes.  Fluff with fork, stir in lime juice and cilantro, serve & enjoy!
