There is one question that I ask my people daily.
“Who wants to go get a burrito?” That’s the question.
Usually I’m met with a big enthusiastic “yes!” from the whole bunch, because burritos. Who doesn’t love burritos?
Every now and then though, I’m reminded that hey. Those burritos cost a fortune and maybe you should try cooking your own food more often. That’s why you have a kitchen, remember? So, I just recreate the Chipotle experience at home, because I still want burritos, even if I’m not eating out.
You can’t have Chipotle without this Copycat Chipotle Cilantro Lime Rice!
This stuff is easy to the peasy. You’ll need rice, cilantro, lime, and a bay leaf. You’re also going to need some water, a bit of salt, and a drizzle of olive oil.
The rice goes into a pot with the water and a bay leaf. It’ll take about 20 minutes to cook the rice. This is easy, don’t be scared.
Remove the bay leaf from the rice, and squeeze your limes right on top. Sprinkle on the cilantro, drizzle on the oil, and toss in a dash of salt.
Give it a big stir and dive on in. This is the perfect base to all your burrito needs. It’s darn good all on its own, too.
