This Instant Pot rice is about as close to a Chipotle copycat cilantro lime rice as you can get. And trust us, we have eaten A LOT of Chipotle!
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!
And this is the AMAZING Result…

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!
I made this for the first time but. certainly not the last!! Great recipe, thank you so much
I love this recipe and use it all the time! But, can you double the recipe? What would the cook time be?
Glad you like the recipe! The cook time would remain the same when doubling the recipe.
