Cilantro Lime Rice



Do you need a fun side dish to liven up a Mexican meal? Do you love Chipotle style rice and want to recreate it at home? Do you love good food? If any of these are true of you, you should make this! This is one of the best rice dishes I've ever tasted, and it's SO simple. I can imagine a ton of applications for this delicious dish, so I'm sure it will become a staple at my house.

Start by combining the water, rice, salt



and butter



in a large saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat. This will smell amazing, like any good butter water should!

Cover and reduce heat to low, then simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is tender. While it cooks, you can mince up the cilantro. I like using my mini chopper for this.



When the rice is done, fluff it with a fork, then add the lime juice



and cilantro.



Fold gently to combine and try not to eat the whole thing right out of the pan...
