Now, let's talk about the homemade cilantro-lime rice. This is another important ingredient to making a delicious burrito bowl. I cooked the cilantro-lime rice in a pressure cooker. It took 3 minutes at high pressure and naturally release for 10 minutes. The rice is flavorful, fragrant and refreshing.
To make cilantro-lime rice, you will need a good quality long grain rice, chicken broth or water, lime zest, lime juice, and fresh chopped cilantro. I am going to show you the complete cooking instructions on the recipe card below.
