You guys… what’s better than Chipotle’s cilantro rice (OK, besides Chipotle’s guacamole..)?? Nothing because that stuff is the bomb! I’ve tried to recreate it time and again, without ever really getting it right. This Cilantro lime rice is a copycat version of the famously delicious Chipotle recipe. It’s fast, easy, and goes great as a side dish to any meal.
I think I’ve gotten it as close as any home chef can get though, so go ahead and give my version a try and let me know what you think!
This recipe goes perfectly with tacos, as a side to grilled chicken, or…anything really!
Better-than-Chipotle’s Cilantro lime rice
Recipe Type: side dish
Chipotle copycat cilantro lime rice.
- 3 cups of cooked rice (brown or white)
- ½ cup of fresh lime juice
- 1 cup of fresh chopped coriander
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- A dash of Worcestershire sauce (skip if you don’t have it)
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Mix the lime juice, coriander, melted butter and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl large enough for the rice until nice and mixed together, then stir in the cooked rice. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
The key to getting this right is by mixing everything together in a big bowl, to make sure all ingredients are evenly incorporated into the rice.
Great recipe, this looks delish! Will def. be trying it out
Easy, quick and tasty – I hope you like it as much as I do!!

This looks so good! I’m pinning this recipe so I can make it this weekend.
Woohoo, I hope you enjoy it!
So simple yet so good
Agreed! Also a money-saver for people that buy the ‘real thing’. So many people don’t realize how easy things are to make at home!!
I’ve never had the original but I love cilantro. I will have to try this recipe! Thank you 🙂
