Chipotle Burritos: Part 2

Earlier this week, I posted my recipe for the seasoned ground beef I use to make homemade Chipotle burritos. If you've ever been to Chipotle, you know there are a lot of ingredients that go into one of their burritos.

Today, I'll share my recipes for cilantro-lime brown rice, pico de gallo, and guacamole (my favorite part of a burrito). Tomorrow, I'll finish with the corn, beans, and queso.

Homemade Chipotle Burritos: Cilantro-Lime Brown Rice
  1. Cook 2 cups of brown rice according to instructions on the package. 
  2. Once rice is cooked, cool for a few minutes, and mix in the following:
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
Homemade Chipotle Burritos: Pico de Gallo

Combine the following:
  • 3 tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 onion, diced
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Homemade Chipotle Burritos: Guacamole
  1. Peel, chop, and mash 1 avocado. 
  2. Mix in 2 teaspoons lime juice and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

That's farily simple, isn't it? Making homemade Chipotle burritos isn't rocket science, but it takes a fair bit of time and quite a few ingredients.

    Ellie I have an idea for you, which is not related to this topic. My idea is that you could fill out online surveys. I am in a couple of Canadian survey company email lists. I make about ten dollars a month in online gift certificates. But today I was a draw winner (exciting), that is an unexpected 100$! Maybe you already do this.
    Ask around or search online reviews to figure out which companies are rated best and recommended to sign up with. One thing I did was give a slightly different birthday, (to protect my privacy). When I thought of you watching your spending so closely I thought you might like this as a way to earn money for gifts. I had the best experience with Web Perspectives in Canada. Participating in focus groups for them netted me a few hundred $s and some great gifts too. Just an idea for you. Best wishes.

    1. Thanks for the idea! I have heard of people doing that, but I haven't taken the time to look into it. I'll put that on my to-do list. :)

      God Bless,

      Just got a cheque in the mail today for $100 from one survey company, and in the past I got a $ 25 gift card for Visa - both times I won a draw held by a he companies. Doing online surveys is worth it, in my experience! Plus getting to weigh in ones answers on varied topics gives one a sense of mattering!

    3. Wow! I'm really going to have to check that out! :)

      Ellie, sorry for the typos, I use a little tablet and it is catchy sometimes. Cashed my cheque this afternoon and being so happy about it I told the teller where I got it and he wanted to put a hold on it for a week because it came from an internet based source
      (it is true that the internet can be fraught with scams, but I am quite confident this is a reliable company that I won from this time. I am not debiting my account to send funds to anyone, after I cashed the cheque that just went straight into ma purse!)
