One of my favorite things about Chipotle is their Cilantro Lime Rice. Here is a simple version of this delicious dish that you can make at home!

Bring 2 C. of water to a boil in a saucepan. Stir in 1 tbsp. of butter and 1 C. of rice. I use Jasmine rice. It has a great texture and is one of the most healthy types of rice. It is a carbohydrate, but it can be broken down in the body more easily than most carbs. Cover the rice and reduce the heat to low. Simmer 20 minutes.

Stir in 1 tsp. of salt, 1/2 C. chopped cilantro, 1 clove of chopped garlic, 1/4 of a chopped white onion, 2 tbsp. of fresh lime juice, and 1 tsp. lime zest. Mix together and enjoy! This rice is so easy and quick!
