I am a huge fan of a burrito bar. One of my favorites is Chipotle. It can get costly for all 5 of us to eat there so I decided to make a burrito/taco bar for dinner. It was a hit!
2 bags steamers white rice (I used brown)
¼ C. chopped cilantro
2 T butter
2 T lime juice
Salt to taste
4-5 boneless chicken breasts
1 C. zesty Italian salad dressing
½ T chili powder
½ T cumin
2 t minced garlic
2 cans pinto or black beans
To make ahead:
Cook 2 bags steamers white rice then mix with next 3 ingredients in a medium microwave safe bowl with lid.
Mix next 5 ingredients in a large zipper bag. Zip and squish around to mix.
Pour beans into medium microwave safe container with lid.
Pour chicken and sauce into slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 hours then shred with two forks.
Microwave beans and rice until warm.
Use4-6 Burrito size (or taco size) flour tortillas and let everyone build their own burrito.
Garnish with shredded cheese, sour cream and salsa.
Cost for 5 of us to eat at Chipotle is around $40.00
Cost for a build your own burrito/taco bar at home……$14.00!!
Make a few batches of the chicken and freeze it. The rice, cheese and flour tortillas may also be frozen. The chicken can go in the slow cooker frozen. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Stop giving away all your money! You can eat just as good at home.
