Chipotle Rice


1 teaspoon vegetable oil or butter

2 teaspoon fresh cilantro coarsely chopped

2/3 cup white basmati rice

1 cup water

1/2 teaspoon salt (Kosher works best)

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  20 - 25 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork. Before serving stir in cilantro.
