Instant Pot Cilantro Lime Rice – Chipotle Copycat

Instant Pot Cilantro Lime Rice

Chipotle Copycat

A few years ago, when my wife was pregnant with our second child, we ate too much Chipotle. She had the worst food aversion possible and it was the only thing that sounded good. So much so that it went from being my favorite fast food place to not wanting to eat it for a year. That’s no exaggeration, we went more than a year without even thinking about it. During that stretch, I began making it at home pretty regularly because I just couldn’t afford it any more! Well, this Instant Pot cilantro lime rice is my very own Chipotle Copycat cilantro lime rice. And it’s pretty doggone good!

    I did it with the white rice modification shown. I also threw in some of the lime zest. Was so light, fluffy and flavorful – as good as any restarant!
