Costco's Cilantro Lime Rice Is A Total Chipotle Dupe
By Arianna Endicott
Both of the rice options at Chipotle are boiled with bay leaves for some extra flavor, then seasoned with lemon juice, lime juice, and cilantro. This rice is delicious, but eating out can get expensive; fortunately, there is a rice product at Costco that makes it easy to recreate your favorite Chipotle order at home to satisfy your burrito-bowl cravings.
Instagram user @costco_doesitagain posted a photo of Ritika's Global Grains branded organic Cilantro & Lime Rice, which is being sold in Costco stores. The rice is organic, vegan, and gluten-free, is made with fresh cilantro and lime in each packet, and each box contains six 8-ounce packets of fully cooked rice, which can be heated up in the microwave in 90 seconds.
Commenters on the post were quick to point out that the rice was similar to the version served at Chipotle, with user @breeups13 saying, “Chipotle …DUUPPPE!” While this rice is only available in Los Angeles-area Costco locations, the brand may expand to more locations in the future, as the brand said in the comment section: “follow our page to see where we stock next.”
