Cilantro Lime Rice

This is a copycat recipe for Chipotle’s rice — and, yeah, I think it’s pretty close. The quantities are approximate, so you can tweak it according to your tastes, but this should get you started.


  • 3 cups cooked rice (in theory you could use leftover rice, but I think it’s probably better to prepare the rice fresh for this recipe)
  • 1-2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves
  • juice of 1 lime (2-3 tablespoons if you’re using the bottled stuff, which works just fine IMO)
  • salt to taste


  1. Ummm . . .  mix it all together when the rice is still hot.
