Chipotle Rice

I found this recipe on one of those restaurant copy cat sites. Maybe you know of the Mexican grill Chipotle. This is one of the famous dishes they serve. This rice is seasoned perfectly with the cilantro and lime juice. This makes an excellent side dish on its down.

1 teaspoon sunflower oil
2 teaspoons fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
2/3 cup white basmati rice
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
juice of 1 lime

1. In a 2-quart heavy saucepan on high heat, add oil, rice and lime juice, stir for 1 minute. Add water and salt, bring to a full rolling boil.

2. At boiling, cover, turn down to simmer over low heat until rice is tender and the water is absorbed, about 25 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork. Before serving stir in cilantro.

Yields: 4 servings
