About this Custom Cook

This cilantro lime rice resembles the rice at Chipotle (but in my opinion this is better). I use Jasmine rice in this recipe, but you could also use Basmati or another long-grain white rice.

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon lime juice (about 1 lime)

1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 bay leaf
Zest of 1 lime

3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
