Instant Pot Cilantro Lime Rice

A meal that is a family fave is burrito bowls. We use this Cilantro Lime Rice recipe for the base of the bowl.

Then we make a Mexican buffet of either shredded chicken or ground beef as the meat. We then put shredded cheese, sour cream, guacamole, salsa and either black beans or pinto beans and let the kids make their own meal.

This tastes just like Chipotle’s cilantro lime rice! Another way to eat this is with grilled lime chicken. DELISH!
