 I love eating at Chipotle – tons of gluten free options and the food is mighty yummy. But there is one thing that I do not like about Chipotle and that is the price – so I thought I would use my brain and make a copycat recipe for Chipotle Rice :)

I did find a number of copycat recipes on the internet but they use TONS of oil or ingredients that are expensive. So after some experimenting I have come up with a perfect copy cat recipe of the Chipotle Rice! It passed the Mr. Savvy and Budget Savvy Diva test

What you need:

1) 1 cup Rice

2) Lime Juice ( 3/4 Lime)

3) 2 Cups of Water

4) 1 tsp salt

5) 3 tbsp ( finely chopped cilantro )

6) 3 tsp vegetable oil

What To Do:

1) Place 2 tsp of Vegetable oil, Cilantro and Lime Juice in a small bowl and mix. Should look like the picture below

2) Either use a rice cooker ( I did) or cook rice on the stove top.

Add 1 cup of rice + 2 Cups of Water add salt and 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
mix and cook.

3) Mix Rice and Cilantro Lime Mixture in a bowl.

4) Enjoy this amazing rice :)

Final Product :)  This rice is amazing and very easy to make perfect side to any meal!

Recipe was inspired by Skinny Taste – I changed amount of lime used and I changed how the recipe is made :)
