Oh, Chipotle. How we love your spicy hot sauce, fresh cilantro-lime rice, all that guac... mmm. But the portion sizes? Unless you’re actually a “save half for later” kinda person (props to you), it’s next-to-impossible to leave Chipotle without feeling like Thanksgiving just ended. Luckily, your favorite Chipotle chicken recipe, burrito bowl, and tacos actually aren’t that hard to recreate. Next time you’re craving the Tex-Mex goodness, skip the personal Man vs. Food challenge and use these recipes to make your own version at home. Your stomach (and wallet) will thank you.
Sofritas fans, you’re gonna want to eat this all.the.time. The spicy sauce is made with peppers, salsa, garlic, and a pinch of sugar, and goes over scrambled tofu, pinto beans, and onions. Top it with lettuce, guac, and a squeeze of lime juice to really replicate the taste.
If you’re gonna make Chipotle at home, you have to have the right base. This 10-minute recipe transforms leftover brown rice with just three ingredients (plus salt and pepper): avocado oil, lime juice, and fresh cilantro.
