Isn’t Chipotle yummy!! Its not fast food, its fresh yummy food fast! Though if I could change one thing.. A DRIVE THRU!!!! Who wants to haul kids out of the vehicle when you’re starving and trying to throw down some food before naps!!? I would probably eat there more often if they did indeed have a drive thru (Chipotle are you listening!??, Help us Mommas out!!)
So anyhooo.. I got word of this blog from 2 healthy Foodie Momma’s (thanks Amy and Jush!!) and I love her stuff. We don’t cook alot of red meat for a variety of reasons, more spendy, fattier, not as healthy as white meat and such. But I knew my hubby would love it and its something new and fun! I wasn’t disappointed at all.

It was quick, easy and I think next time I will throw it in the crockpot and then will skip the oil and be even healthier! I only used 2 chipotles in mine and it had quite a kick. I also only had a 2 pound piece of meat and so I only used half the sauce I made as I didn’t want to blow the kids away and it was great! So I have some in the freezer ready to for for next time!!
I paid 2.98 a pound for my meat and we all ate, sent Daniel with lunch and still have half of it left! Way to make it last for a quick Sunday after church meal!! I did a rice bowl similar to Chipotles and Daniel made it into a burrito. I have made a corn salsa similar to hers before and so I whipped that up too!! http://www.skinnytaste.com/2010/02/corn-salsa-with-lime.html (i don’t put tomato in mine as we aren’t fresh tomato lovers!)
Served it with Brown Rice, Sour Cream, Cheese and Juanita’s Tortilla Chips. Perfecto!!!
Here’s my plate of dinner after my chiro and massage (heats up great too!)
