DIY Chipotle

Chipotle is one of my favorite places to eat, just please no E.Coli. Thankfully it’s easy enough to duplicate at home and make a healthier version, with a few different recipes.

My favorite choice of meat is steak, it’s what I always order when I order a bowl or salad from Chipotle. This steak recipe is one of my favorites and could be used for anything from fajitas, steak bowls, steak salads, tacos, etc. Best of all, you can use a cheaper cut of meat and it’ll taste super flavorful and tender.

Recipe makes 4 servings, with plenty of leftovers

Ingredients for Steak:

  • 4 lbs. of Flank Steak, trimmed
  • 1 can of Ro*Tel Tomatoes Original
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • ½ cup Cilantro, chopped
  • 2 Limes, juiced
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • Salt to taste
  • Pinch of Cumin

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together and allow to marinade for at least 30 minutes. I like to do this in a zip-lock bag overnight if I have time, if not I mix it together in a bowl and make sure all ingredients are mixed properly.

Cook on the grill or grill pan, make sure it’s hot so you get a nice sear. Cook for 5-7 minutes on each side, depending on how thick your piece of meat is. I like mine medium rare, so when I reheat it, the meat doesn’t overcook.

Once you’re done cooking the meat, place the meat on a plate and let it rest for 10 minutes.

Directions:

Add all the ingredients to a mixing bowl, except the salt. Mix with a fork (I prefer mine chunky so take it slow). Once all the ingredients are mixed roughly, add a pinch of salt and mix and add until it’s your preferred taste and texture.
