Chipotle



Brooks and I have an obsession with Chipotle's food. So, this recipe is a new favorite because it can be tweeked to taste almost exactly like their food!
Original recipe found HERE but the one below is our tweeked one. This is super easy to make and soooo good!

We will call it (trying be original here)....

Homemade Chipotle

Ingredients:

2 cans black beans (drained)
2 cans corn (drained)
2 cans Ro Tel (best choice- the one that says lime and cilantro)
1 package cream cheese
1/2 a bag of chicken tenderloin
fresh cilantro
fresh lettuce
salt
lemon juice
rice
soft tortilla's (if you prefer the burrito method)

Directions:

Throw chicken, Ro Tel, corn, beans and cream cheese into crock pot.
Cook on high for approx. 4 hours or low for approx. 8 hrs.
About 30 minutes before crock pot food is ready, cook your rice so it will be ready at the same time.
Shred chicken. Add lemon juice and salt to taste.
Serve over the rice and add in the cilantro and lettuce to individual servings to avoid it getting soggy.

Other option (and the one we did):
Cook the chicken tenderloins and shred before adding it to the crock pot. If chicken is cooked beforehand, the crock pot only needs to heat everything up and mix the flavors.
