Copycat Chipotle Cilantro Lime Rice is even better than the original! The perfect side dish to any Mexican or Tex-Mex meal! It has the perfect balance of zesty lime juice, salt, and cilantro. I even included directions for the Instant Pot!
In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat add butter. Once the butter has melted, add the rice and continue to stir until the rice has a golden color.
Add the broth and bring to a boil. Stir in rice, cover and reduce heat to low, and cook for 15 minutes, or until rice is cooked through and tender.
Remove the rice from heat, fluff with a fork. Add lime juice, cilantro, and salt. Mix together and serve immediately.
Rinsing the water is a very important step which removes the starch.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days.
