Chipotle at Home


One of the fast food restaurants my husband and I miss while living in Europe is Chipotle restaurant. The meals are quick, healthy, and so tasty. Since we couldn’t get there last Thursday night, I decided to bring it to our home. It was super easy and satisfying. Also, if you are on a gluten-free diet, then this recipe is for you, too!
First Task: Lime-flavored cilantro rice
Here’s how to do it: Cook your rice as you would normally do according to the package. For every cup of rice, add a 1/4 teaspoon of lime juice and a half a cup of chopped, fresh cilantro.
Second task: Meat or Poultry
-Use either one pound of the following: chicken, ground meat, or steak
-Season with:
1 teaspoon of cumin
4 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of diced onion
1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
Saute in 2 Tbsp of canola or vegetable oil to cook.

Third task: The Veggies
-Diced tomatoes
-Shredded Lettuce
-Diced Avocadoes
-Diced Onions (optional since your using cooked onions in the meat)

Fourth Task: Miscellaneous Toppings
-Cheese (use monterey jack blend, mild cheddar, or even better, QUESO BLANCO)
-Beans (we like black beans)
-Salsa (Blend 1 can of mild Rotel, 1 cup of fresh cilantro, juice of 1/2 lime, salt, 1/4 cup of onion)
-Sour Cream (optional)
-Habanero Hot Sauce

Here’s what it looks like:

Try this tonight or on a night when you don’t feel like doing much cooking!
Let me know how it turns out…
