Chipotle Rice

Patrick has been making this rice the last few times we have had chicken and rice, including our Christmas Eve dinner. For New Year's Eve we are having a Chipotle style potluck for the Murder Mystery event. Patrick and I volunteered to provide the chicken, beef and rice and everyone else brought the toppings. Here is the recipe for the Chipotle rice.

Chipotle Rice

Chipotle Rice

1 teaspoon vegetable oil or butter
2 tsp. fresh cilantro
2/3 cup white basmati rice
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Lime

In a 2-quart heavy saucepan, heat oil or butter over low heat, stirring occasionally until melted. Add rice and lime juice, stir for 1 minute. Add water and salt, bring to a full rolling boil. At boiling, cover, turn down to simmer over low heat until rice is tender and the water is absorbed, about 25 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork.
