Knock-off Chipotle Burritos (Revised)

How many of you are huge fans of Chipotle but don’t have one near you?  Our family has to drive at least 45 minutes away if we are craving one of their tasty burritos.  So, I thought,”Why not just make them myself  from the comfort of my own kitchen?”  If you ask me, they were pretty close to the amazing taste of Chipotle.

  3. 2 teaspoons salt
  4. juice of ½ lime

  1. 1. In a small bowl combine the spices. Sprinkle evenly over chicken and steak pieces.
  2. 2. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add the chicken and cook through. Remove pan from heat and set aside.

  4. 4. For the corn salsa, mix all ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.
