Lime Cilantro Rice

Love that Chipotle rice?  Well, here’s how you can enjoy all the same flavors for half the calories!

Tastes just like “the real thing”!


2 cups water

1 tablespoon butter

1 cup long-grain white rice (I used Uncle Ben’s Original Rice)

Juice of 1 lime

Zest of 1 lime

1/2 cup chopped cilantro

1.  Bring the water to a rapid boil.  STir the butter and rice into the water, cover, and reduce the heat to low.  Simmer until the rice is tender, about 20 minutes.

2.  Stir the lime zest, lime juice, and cilantro into the cooked rice just before serving.

Every Monday is a “Reci-bee” post, where I share my favorite recipes, recipe collections, and cooking and baking hints and tips.
