Copycat Chipotle® Cilantro-Lime Brown Rice

Copycat Chipotle® Cilantro-Lime Brown Rice

skinnymom

"This recipe is a great spin-off on your conventional (and let's face it, plain) side dish of rice at dinner. The brown rice provides a nutritious, fiber-packed alternative to white rice, and the cilantro and the lime gives this dish an extra dash of delicious Mexican flavor."
