Johnny & I LOVE Chipotle! So much so, that we almost had them cater our wedding, no joke! We went another route just 2 months before the wedding. Unfortunately now we do not have one near us, so I decided to attempt to make the next best thing! Chipotle Lime & Cilantro Rice & Chicken soft tacos! YUM!
I found this recipe here for Cilantro Lime Rice a few weeks ago and have been really wanting to make some. Tonight I did. I have never been good at making rice (unless it is instant rice) but tonight it was perfect!
While the rice was cooking I sauted about 1-2 tablespoons of finely chopped onions in olive oil, adding 1 cup of cubed pieces of chicken, then after two minutes I added 1-2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro, and 1-2 tablespoons of lime juice.
We added sea salt, guac, and white cheese to everything and put it on corn tortillas! Excited about eating left over rice for lunch tomorrow.
