Tired of the weekly taco recipe? Want to try something new, fun and easy? We love Chipotle and decided to give the usual chicken taco a makeover!

1 packet of McCormick taco seasoning
Garlic salt

Cook 10 min and add seasoning.

Cilantro & Lime Rice

3 cups of Long Grain or Jasmine rice
1/3 cup butter
1 fresh lime- juiced
1/4 cup Cilantro
1 tsp salt- add more to taste if needed
5 1/2-6 cups water

Melt butter in saucepan. Add rice and cook on med-high heat until rice is somewhat translucent 5 min. Add lime juice, water and salt. Bring to a boil and cover. Boil for 5 min. Turn to low and simmer for 15 minutes. When done add fresh cilantro and salt to taste. Tip: For less sticky rice add a few Tbp less water and more butter when cooked.
