If you like Chipotle, you probably like cilantro rice! I have been wanting to make this rice at home for the longest time. I finally came across a recipe that sounded perfect. The best part is, it's extremely easy! I was done within 20 minutes (and rice takes about 15). Easy and delicious, you can't go wrong there. This is great with fajitas, burritos, tacos, you name it. Enjoy!
Place one cup of rice and two cups of water in a large pot. Bring the water to a boil and stir. Lower the heat and simmer for 15-18 minutes or until all the water is absorbed and the rice is tender.
Meanwhile, using a food processor/blender mix together the cilantro, salt, lime juice, olive oil and garlic. Blend together until smooth. After the rice has cooked, fluff it with a fork and add the cilantro mixture to the rice. Stir well and serve!
