This Cilantro Lime Rice is the perfect side to any Mexican dish! I recently paired this with my Slow Cooker Chicken Burrito Bowls, which was sooo delicious. Have you tried this yet?
I first got addicted to Cilantro Lime Rice when I started eating at Chipotle.
I used to get their Chicken Burrito Bowls all of the time with a big heap of their Cilantro Lime Rice. And of course I’d have to get a side of their chips and homemade guacamole as well… don’t judge! 🙂
But it gets kind of expensive eating out all of the time. So I try to recreate my favorite dishes that I have when I eat out, and make them at home to save money $$.
Here’s what you need to make this yummy side:
Jasmine Rice (I prefer the flavor and texture of this rice over regular white rice)
That’s it! 3 simple ingredients!
Check out the Recipe Video Below!
You can add this as a filler for burritos, tacos, or just eat it on the side with your favorite Mexican dish.
I’m thinking this would be good mixed with some Black Beans as well.. really the possibilities are endless with what you can eat this with!
