How to make vegetarian cilantro lime brown rice

Print this recipe
Who else is addicted to the rice bowls at Chipotle? I admit, I’ve developed quite a habit. In an effort to cut back on my restaurant spending, I created the recipe that follows so I could make rice bowls at home without having to settle for plain steamed rice. I love that I can make enough for several meals at once, too.
I pile this high with lettuce, beans, salsa, cheese and sour cream, and it’s a perfect dinner. It has all the Chipotle flavors I love, and I can make it at home in less time than it would take me to complete a takeout run. Now I just have to figure out how to imitate the corn salsa.
