We rarely have fast food, but when we do my #1 choice is always Chipotle. I remember Jon had to drag me there for the first time, almost kicking and screaming. What was I thinking? The burritos became one of my favorite things, loving to try new combinations. At the time, the closest one was 2 hours – so, I started making my own. ChipotleFan is a great source for all kinds of Chipotle “copycat” recipes, their chicken marinade is k-i-l-l-e-r. I haven’t tried a recipe on there that isn’t spot-on. But, time after time I kept coming back to the carnitas with the corn salsa.

So, here’s my homemade version, in all it’s glory. I love the lightly seasoned pork, and the roasted peppers and corn all wrapped up in a soft tortilla. I’ll usually make it with leftover pork, which makes for an easier weeknight meal. The components are great on their own too, as more of a burrito bowl style. I like to keep the filling simple – rice, beans, pork, and salsa. But, a bit of sour cream, cheese, or guac is great inside as well!

    Oh my gosh! These look amazing!! And they do look exactly like what you would get at Chipotle! I’m a huge fan of that restaurant and we no longer live near one. These are going on our menu ASAP.

    These were fantastic! I made them after 3 weeks in Japan, craving a Chipotle burrito the whole time. These totally scratched the itch. Thanks!
