I have a downfall — Qdoba black bean and shredded beef burritos…with their special hot sauce. I know they have their new brown rice, but I think their Cilantro Lime Rice totally makes it (and I compromise with a whole wheat tortilla)
This is my “go to” rice for ANY Mexican dishes now… I am just careful about how much cilantro I use – too much and you get that “soapy” taste.
Qdoba Cilantro Lime Rice
- 2 cups water
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 cup long-grain white rice
- 1 teaspoon lime zest
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 1/2 cup (loose) chopped cilantro
Bring water to a boil; stir butter and rice into water.
Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until rice is tender for 20 minutes.
Stir lime zest, lime juice, and cilantro into cooked rice just before serving.
That is it!
SUPER easy and well worth making it yourself, as you save BIG bucks with an inexpensive staple like rice.
To use it, just add some inside your burritos or soft shell tacos — it helps stretch the meat, adds flavor and saves a few pennies.
