Cilantro-Lime Rice

One of my favorite parts of visiting Chipotle's is getting to eat their Cilantro-Lime Rice.  What a great blend of flavors!  While I don't know how they make theirs, I gave it a try at my house and came up with something pretty similar and pretty tasty!

Cilantro-Lime Rice

4 C cooked long grain rice
1/4 C fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 - 1 lime
2 t salt
  1. Place the rice and cilantro in a large bowl.
  2. Squeeze the juice of  lime over the rice.
  3. Gently toss the rice to mix the flavors.
  4. Taste.
  5. Add salt, if needed, and toss again.
  6. Serve.
NOTE:  Some of my limes have been quite tart.  If yours are like these, you will want to add less lime rather than more.
