Chipotle {At Home}

Simple Menu + Humble Ingredients = Success

 

Chipotle has managed to take a few simple items and strike gold. Everyone loves Chipotle. From children to seniors, burritos bowls to guac, everyone loves almost everything about Chipotle. Since you love nearly everything about Chipotle, why not save yourself some time (you know how those lines can be during the lunch rush), some added sodium and fat and prepare Chipotle at home.

 

This is a family favorite in my house. I just line everything up and each person (except my 2 year old) assembles his or her own bowl.
