Enough already, can it just be grilling season?
I woke up to a very blue sky, a sky that made it look like a warm spring day. Actually, I woke up while it was still pitch black outside, I think this means I get up way too early. When the sun finally did rise though, it was the bluest sky you will ever see. If you live in Colorado then you know what I am talking about.
I swear you have never seen a blue sky until you come to Colorado.
As fast as the sun rose, in rolled the clouds……
The clouds that are currently dumping very wet spring snow all over the place. It is a now a whiteout and so definitely not sunny anymore, just wet and cold and very white.
Whatever though, trust me a little snow has never stopped me from grilling. I grill all year round. The grill just makes too much deliciousness to give up. Well that, and the fact that I have brothers. Meat loving brothers, who are spoiled and will ONLY eat their steak if it is grilled, even though I keep telling them that my cast iron skillet can work some magic on those things too.
So I make these burritos A LOT.
They are pretty easy and most of the time I actually just use leftover steak tossed with the marinade. I just slowly reheat it over the stove. It works just as good and it’s the best way to use up any left over steak.
Ok, so here’s the truth. I am not a steak lover and I have never had a Chipotle steak burrito. So, obviously I am not going to sit here and tell you it tastes exactly the same, because is does not. It’s different, but different in a very good way.
It’s heavy on the Mexican seasonings, loaded with cheese, and filled with cilantro lime rice, rice that does taste exactly like Chipotles! Now, I have some picky eaters on my hands over here and they will not go near avocados, beans or lettuce! I know! No avocados, isn’t that awful! But around here it’s just a whole lot of steak, rice and cheese. But I highly recommend adding some mashed avocado, black beans and lettuce. Cause really color is a good thing!
Oh, and if you are wondering, it now looks like a winter wonderland outside. Fresh white spring!
