Chipotle Cilantro Lime Rice Recipe Leaked

Chipotle Burrito

I love Chipotle and I love their rice.  While browsing the internet to try to figure out how many calories a Chipotle burrito has I stumbled across a posting with the ingredients for the cilantro-lime rice.  The full batch ingredients are as follow:

Chipotle Cilantro Lime Rice

  • 12 pounds of rice (uncooked)
  • 3 cups soybean oil
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro
  • 2 Tablespoons salt
  • 1/2 cup lime juice

Directions: Cook rice as package states, add the rest of the ingredients.

Pretty simple, but oh so yummy.  Now you ask, when will I ever need 12 uncooked pounds of rice?  I guess that is a bit much, so here it is divided by 27.43  (12lbs = 192oz/7 oz per cup = 27.43 cups) for a more reasonable amount.

Normal Serving Size of Chipotle Cilantro Lime Rice

  • 1 cup of rice (uncooked, about 7 oz)
  • 2 Tablespoons soybean oil (okay, it’s technically 1.75 US Tablespoons)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh cilantro (1.75 US teaspoons)
  • Dash of Salt (.22 US teaspoons)
  • 1 teaspoon of lime juice (.875 US teaspoons)

Directions: Cook rice as package states, add the rest of the ingredients.

So there you go, now I want Chipotle.  Anyone else have any of their other recipes?  Oh by the way, they do not officially post their nutrition content, but most people estimate 800-1200 calories depending on what is ordered and the quantity delivered during assembly.
