Cilantro-Lime Brown Rice (à la Chipotle)

cilantro-lime brown rice

Are you a fan of brown rice? I can’t say that I am, but there is a brown rice that I actually enjoy. It’s the brown rice that is served at Chipotle Mexican Grill, my favorite “fast-casual” restaurant. I took one of their menus home and made my own version. (It’s just rice, lime and cilantro. I simply had to play around with the combinations.) This rice is so good that it can easily be substituted for white rice…especially in Mexican meals!

That was easy, right? Now, if you need some other Mexican recipes to go along with your rice, consider the following FCM recipes…
