Chipotle?

So, if you know Ben and me, you know that one of our most favorite places to eat is Chipotle!  For me, it's a chicken burrito (sometimes bowl if I'm trying to be good), no beans, with cheese, lettuce, and sour cream!  Ben is a fajita chicken burrito guy with lettuce and cheese (I think...now I can't quite remember what he gets on his).  So about a year ago, I stumbled upon a website that claimed to have Chipotlesque recipes.  I tried them out and the burritos were pretty tasty but not QUITE like our favorite restaurant.  The rice was too cilantro-y and the chicken wasn't spicy enough.

Since then, I've been wanting to try again but the problem is the marinade suggests marinating over night and I usually didn't think about trying the recipe again until the day of....see my problem?  Enter: SPRING BREAK!!  Now, I've been pretty busy this break doing non-fun things, like cleaning and completing my online portfolio for grad school.  But that also means I am home and can make the marinade ahead of time.  YAY!!!

So tonight I made the marinade....what do you think?


Before blending!  Lots of garlic


All blended up!  At this point I tasted a little and it was HOT!  Wonder how the chicken will be


Marinated chicken!

So come back tomorrow (or maybe Friday) to see how the Chipotlesque burittos turn out!
