You can use taco seasoning, but I love using smoky chile powders so I made my own. The Chipotle Ranch can be made by mixing bottled Ranch with Chipotle and SmokedContinue reading “Chicken Fajita Salad”

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.

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.
