Copycat Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowl

I love Chipotle’s Chicken Burrito Bowls, but I’m not a fan of paying almost $10 for it when I can make it much cheaper and add more toppings. I also made a batch of my Cantina Style Salsa to go with it. Chicken: 3 large Chicken Thighs 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil 1 teaspoon Ancho ChileContinue reading “Copycat Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowl”

Copycat Taco Bell Fiesta Chicken Taco Salad

Still mourning Taco Bell’s Fiesta Taco Salad. I added some things that don’t normally come with it and I baked the chicken in my toaster oven so I wasn’t babysitting my griddle. You can air fry the tortilla bowl too. Or you can do what I did and give yourself a second degree burn. Chicken:Continue reading “Copycat Taco Bell Fiesta Chicken Taco Salad”

Copycat Panda Express Cream Cheese Rangoons

I love Panda Express’ Crab Rangoons and they’re so easy to make! Oddly enough, they don’t use crab or imitation crab in their original recipe. Feel free to add some though, it’s delicious!

Texture is aContinue reading “Copycat Taco Bell Supreme Tacos”
