Served with Slim Palate’s Carnitas
I love Chipotle’s cilantro-lime white rice. With this recipe I really wanted to create that same side dish that could go with a bunch of stuff I cook throughout the week. It’s a nice staple to have on hand for any Mexican dish you cook. Sure you can do the real deal Chipotle recipe found in Paleo Takeout (which I do from time to time), but this recipe gets a lot more use considering that I consume a lot more cauliflower rice throughout the week instead of white rice. I searched the web high and low and found this recipe and then adapted it slightly. This recipe omits the adding of water and I add some Kerrygold Butter at the end. Making this the perfect side for adding some healthy omega–3 packed fats to your meal.
