Cilantro Lime Rice | C&D Move to L.V. | Try this Chipotle inspired rice. Perfect for a summer side dish

This Chipotle’s inspired rice is the perfect side dish to go with chicken, meat, fish etc. I’m very into cooking with fresh cilantro and lime, so I thought this was the perfect dish!. I personally just served this with flank steak and it was the perfect combination.

I have a love/hate relationship with rice because it is a great healthy side dish that fills you up. On the other hand, it can get pretty boring after awhile. Therefore, this recipe is perfect to change it up. Plus this may be the easiest way to prepare a side dish ever. A total of 20 minutes tops and most of that time it is out of the way and out of mind on the stovetop. Sounds good to me!
