Do you have a favorite restaurant meal that you always crave whenever you go out to eat? I do! In fact, I’ve got several…but one of my favorites is the Chipotle’s Burrito Bowl. I used to order the burrito at Chipotle, but then my wife taught me to order the bowl and ask for the tortilla on the side. Then you just tear off pieces of the tortilla and make a bunch of mini-burritos. (Just typing this is making me crave a burrito bowl now!)
I really enjoy cooking at home, so I decided to take on the challenge of re-creating the Chipotle Burrito Bowl at home. I had a blast tweaking the recipes until I found a version that got pretty darned close to what you get at Chipotle. My sister-in-law is straight addicted to Chipotle, and she was the first one to introduce me to the wonders of a Chipotle burrito bowl many years ago. I knew she would make a great judge, so I bribed her to do a taste test for me. And the result? Two thumbs up! I’ll take it…and I’ll also take a burrito bowl for dinner tonight please!
