Better than Chipotle Cilantro Lime Rice
Yup, I said it. This is better than Chipotle's Cilantro rice! Enjoy this with chicken and veggies on top or just as a side dish!

Citrus Juicer/Wooden Reamer
Measuring cups & spoons
white onion or 1 shallot, diced
salt and pepper (to taste)
chicken broth, low sodium (or water)
zest from the 2 limes
fresh cilantro, chopped
In a medium sized frying pan over medium heat, melt the butter and add in the onion and garlic. Stir occasionally and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add in the rice and stir for 30 seconds.
Add in the cumin, garlic powder, salt, pepper and chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Cover with a lid and cook for 15-20 minutes. DO NOT lift the lid while the rice is cooking.
Once the rice is cooked, fluff with a fork and add in the lime zest, lime juice and chopped cilantro. Give it a nice stir and serve warm!
When you chop the cilantro use the leaves and some of the stems! The stems have great flavor.
