This easy Chipotle Copycat Instant Pot Cilantro Lime Rice recipe is a great all purpose rice dish that will be loved by your whole family. It makes a great side to serve with Mexican, Asian, and takeout dishes, use as a base for bowls, and as filling for burritos and tacos.
I used plain basmati rice for this. Make sure this is rinsed till the water runs clear.
Just regular water is all you need to cook this rice.
The addition of lime juice and lime zest brings tons of flavor.
PREP TIME: 5 MIN
COOK TIME: 5 MIN
Add the water, oil (if using), lime juice, lime zest, and salt into the Instant Pot insert, followed by the rice. Mix together well.
Close the Instant Pot and seal, select the pressure cook (or manual) button, select high pressure, and set the timer to 5 minutes.
When done let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes before quickly releasing the rest of the pressure.
Make sure to rinse the rice until it runs clear and drain well before cooking.
