Cilantro Lime Rice

I'm a big fan of the rice at Chipotle's. Here is a quick and easy copycat version, it tastes just like the real thing. Makes a wonderful side dish for chicken, beef or pork.

1 cup extra long grain rice

2 cups water

1 tsp salt

3 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro

3 tbsp Persian Lime Olive Oil

In a small heavy pot, add rice, water and salt over high heat.

When it comes to a boil, immediately cover with a tight fitting lid and reduce to low heat. Allow to cook for 25 minutes.

Shut off flame and keep covered an additional 5 minute.

Fluff with a fork and add the Persian Lime Olive Oil and chopped fresh cilantro. Mix to combine.
