Cinco De Mayo: Homemade Burrioto Bowl a la Chipotle!

There are a few facts one must know when it comes to Mexican food: Queso is king; Chipotle can’t be beat, and no matter what anyone tells you, tequila is NEVER a good idea.

While Chipotle can’t be beat, it can be copied. After all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and until a Chipotle opens up within the 63129, flattery will have to do. Honestly, this is the easiest dinner you’ll make all week.




  • Minute Rice
  • Black Beans
  • Frozen Chicken Strips
  • Tabasco Chipotle Sauce (the most important part!)
  • Guacamole (I used Wholly Guacamole Singles)
  • Cheese

Microwave your chicken, add to bowl. 20140505-200850.jpg4. Add Tabasco sauce as desired. I like to add it twice – personally, I don’t believe you can ever have enough – this is what makes the bowl! 20140505-200952.jpg5. Top with guacamole, cheese and more Tabasco sauce. Pour yourself a drink and dig in! 20140505-201030

It was so good, I brought the leftovers for lunch (minus the chicken.)
