Cilantro Lime Rice

Rice is one of those foods that is so versatile and easy to make that it’s no wonder it’s such a popular side dish. I love rice, and realistically, I can eat a whole bowl of just plain rice and be super happy but I came across this recipe a while ago and just instantly fell in love. I normally am not a fan of cilantro but it works so perfectly with the lime that you just can’t help but love it. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Serves: 4


  • 1 cup already made white rice
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro-chopped
  • Juice from 1-2 fresh limes



In a large skillet on medium high heat, combine all ingredients and cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently until the rice is warmed up. If using fresh cooked rice, just cook for a few minutes to allow the ingredients to blend together.


This rice is incredible if used with my Crock Pot Shredded Ranch Chicken recipe. I like to add some of this rice, black beans, the chicken, cheese and sour cream in a flour tortilla. It is a mighty close copycat of a Chipotle burrito.
