chipotle copycat carne asada steak bowl
Confession time: I absolutely love Chipotle. I will probably catch some shit for this, but I don’t care. I love it. I’ve been eating it since one first opened up when I was in highschool. It is by no means authentic, but I have an incredible soft spot for it. It’s fast, healthy-ish, fresh, and sustainably sourced. Plus, I love everything there. What is not to love? And even if you don’t love Chipotle, you will love these bowls. I’ve been obsessed with bowls lately. It’s a great way to get a balanced meal that’s full of flavor. With summer coming up, I’ve been really tracking my macros (god I sound lame, but it is what it is) and trying to balance my carbohydrate intake vs my fat and protein. Bowls are perfect because I have have a bit of a starch, protein, veggies and all the sauces or condiments to help make it delicious. Plus, I love to eat leftovers so this recipe is perfect. It’s even perfect for a weeknight recipe. The beans are delicious and SO EASY. There is no saute-ing or anything, everything just gets thrown into the instant pot (which you can do in the morning) and bam! you’ve got delicious beans. The steak can be marinated in the morning and grilled in the evening. And the rice I usually just make in my instant pot after I transfer the beans to something else. 2 cups of long grain white rice with 2 cups of water for 12 minutes on the rice setting and then I just stir in the rest of the ingredients. Could not be easier. So what are you waiting for? Happy cooking!
