Cilantro Lime Rice

I have mentioned my affinity for Chipotle more than once around here, and my favorite part of the whole thing is the rice. It's just so dang good! I was determined to figure out how to make a decent replica that doesn't have a ton of butter in it.

I finally have a recipe that I enjoy eating that tastes relatively close to the real thing. It's not exact, but it still tastes really good! It also works really well with my 21 Day Fix meal plan as an option for the yellow container.

Cilantro Lime Rice
Makes 4 servings


  • Boil-in-bag brown rice
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro
  • Dash of garlic powder
  • Pinch (more or less to taste) of salt

  1. Boil brown rice according to package instructions.
  2. Add lime juice, cilantro, garlic and salt.
  3. Stir well to evenly combine ingredients.
  4. Add 1 yellow's worth to any meal as a side dish.
21 Day Fix Container Breakdown: 1 yellow per serving. Lime juice and seasonings are "free" foods.

This is an easy recipe that takes plain brown rice from boring to delicious with a few key ingredients.
