Copycat Chipotle Cilantro Rice

As prepared by Buns in my Oven,

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!
