Do you like Chipotle?
Okay, silly question. Who doesn’t like Chipotle?
No denying, Chipotle has become a big contender in the fast-food market over the past couple of years. Just ask any of the 50 people that are always waiting in line for a burrito. Is there ever not a line? Seriously.
Anyway, one of the unsung heroes of their burrito – and especially their burrito bol – is the rice. Seasoned to perfection, with just the right amount of garlic and cilantro.
I wanted something similar at home. Because, who wants to wait in a line with 50 people?
(By the way, smart people call their order ahead, and then go to pick it up – no waiting!)
- 1 cup long grain white rice
- 1 can chicken broth*
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, smashed
- 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
*If you don’t have any chicken broth on hand, use 2 cups of water (omit the 2 tablespoons of water). It works just fine.
