Double-Baked Fries with Garlic Cheese Sauce and Bacon
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.
Honestly, where I live there is no grilling season. Even in the summer it drops down into the 20’s at night. Which is just way too freaking cold in my opinion.
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 these things are HUGE. Like crazy big. I used Burrito Grande Flour Tortillas, but if you want a normal burritos just use 12 inch tortilla’s.

Oh, and if you are wondering, it now looks like a winter wonderland outside. Fresh white spring!

I just had to come back and comment again! I made these for lunch today because it’s STAR testing this week and the kids are out at noon. You should have seen the glazed looks in the teenagers eyes at their first bite! Priceless! This steak had so much flavor and I got compliments from my son, daughter, and their friends that these were the BEST burritos they had ever had. So a big THANK YOU for sharing this awesome recipe. I’ll definitely be making these again and again and again!
YES!! Thanks for telling me Michelle!! I am so glad everyone LOVE these! That makes my day!

I love Chipolte! We don’t have one in the town we live in. Probably a good thing though because I would frequently eat there, These look delicious! Pinning!
I’m so glad I found your blog!
Oh my! My family LOVES Chipotle, but unfortunately the only place we have here is Qdoba (no comparison). The cilantro lime rice is beyond addicting and yours looks amazing! Burrito heaven if you ask me! Yum! (Visiting from Michelle’s Tasty Creations linky party!)
