    Red face I Love Chipotle Mexican Grill!

    I'm trying to make the Chipotle Mexican Grill burritos at home since it isn't cost effective for us to eat there as often as we'd like to. Does anyone have the recipe for the chicken or beef they use? I can't seem to get the flavor correct with my seasonings.

    To make any of your Chipolte's favorites, you'll need to start with a marinade:

    CHIPOLTE'S MARINADE
    -------------------

    1 (2 ounce) package dried ancho chiles
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    2 teaspoons cumin powder
    2 tablespoons fresh oregano, chopped
    6 cloves garlic
    1/2 red onion, quartered
    1/4 cup vegetable oil
    4 chicken breasts or small steaks (6 ounces each)

    Soak dry chilies overnight in water, until soft. Remove seeds. Add all
    ingredients except meat in food processor. Puree until smooth.

    Spread mixture over chicken, or other meats and refrigerate at least
    one hour, up to 24 hours.

    After marinading, heat grill to about 400 degrees F, or if cooking
    inside, heat small amount of oil in skillet or grill pan over high
    heat. Salt meat to taste (optional), and grill lightly, turning only
    once, until done. 4 minutes per side for chicken, 8-10 minutes per
    side for 3/4" thick steak.

    Recipe will make four burritos.


    Pork is the meat in Chipolte's Carnitas Recipe. Here are the
    directions for preparing:

    CHIPOLTE'S PORK SHOULDER
    ------------------------

    1 pork shoulder roast, boneless (5-6 pounds, marinate if you like)
    2-3 tablespoons olive oil
    4 medium tomatoes (peeled, if desired)
    1 onion, thinly sliced
    1 teaspoon cumin powder
    2-4 sprigs fresh oregano (or 1/2 teaspoon crushed or powdered)
    2 whole cloves
    2 bay leaves
    2 dried chipotle chilies
    3/4 cup water or meat stock
    Salt/pepper to taste

    Salt and pepper the pork shoulder; allow the meat come to room
    temperature, about 2 hours.

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

    Add olive oil to a large ovenproof pan. Sear the pork over medium-high
    heat until very brown on all sides. Remove pork from the pan; let rest
    on a platter for 10 to 15 minutes.

    Leaving an even coating, drain excess oil from the pan. Add onions;
    sweat over low heat until translucent. Return pork to the pan; add
    remaining ingredients. Cover pan, place in the oven and cook for 2 to
    3 hours or until the internal temperature reaches 140 to 150 degrees
    F. Let pork rest 10 to 15 minutes before slicing


    Chipolte's rice has middle-eastern overtones.

    CHIPOLTE'S BASMATI RICE
    -----------------------

    1 teaspoon vegetable oil or butter
    2 tsp. fresh cilantro
    2/3 cup white basmati rice
    1 cup water
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 Lime

    In a 2-quart heavy saucepan, heat oil or butter over low heat,
    stirring occasionally until melted. Add rice and lime juice, stir for
    1 minute. Add water and salt, bring to a full rolling boil. At
    boiling, cover, turn down to simmer over low heat until rice is tender
    and the water is absorbed, about 25 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork.

    [bahs-MAH-tee]
    Basmati is a long-grained rice, with a fine texture. It can be found
    in Middle Eastern and India markets, as well as some supermarkets.

    Chipotle Adobo Marinade for Grilled Vegetables


    Ingredients:
    1 small can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
    1 to 2 Tablespoons butter, softened
    1 to 2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
    Corn-on-the-cob
    Japanese eggplant
    Zucchini


    Instructions:
    In a bowl, combine 4 Tablespoons adobo sauce (save chipotle peppers to use some other time.), butter and lemon juice; stir to combine.

    Peel back corn husks, but do not remove, then remove the silks. Brush the corn with the adobo sauce mixture, then replace the husks and wrap in aluminum foil. Place corn on the grill for 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally.

    Quarter the Japanese eggplants lengthwise. Parboil the pieces 2 to 3 minutes or until the color brightens. Brush the pieces with adobo sauce mixture; grill until tender. You may also brush the adobo sauce mixture over the eggplant pieces while they are cooking.

    Split the zucchinis in half lengthwise. Parboil the pieces until the color brightens, about 2 to 3 minutes. Brush the zucchini pieces with the adobo sauce mixture. Grill until just tender. You may also brush the adobo sauce mixture over the zucchini pieces while they are cooking.

    Chipotle Cha-Cha Soup


    3 teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    1 1/2 Cups Onion, chopped
    3 cloves Garlic, minced
    2 1/2 Cups Cooked Chicken, cubed or shredded
    14 1/2 oz. Can of Chicken Broth*
    3 teaspoons Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce, chopped
    2 Cups diced fresh Tomatoes or one 14 1/2 oz. can**
    1/2 teaspoon Sugar (optional)***
    1/2 teaspoon Chili Powder
    1/4 teaspoon Ground Cumin
    1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt or to taste
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper or to taste
    1/4 Cup Fresh Cilantro, snipped
    Garnish: Great as is or top with ... a spoonful of sour cream and chopped green onion, shredded or crumbled white Mexican Cheese. Serve with Tortilla Chips

    In a large heavy saucepan, cook the onion and garlic in the oil over medium heat for 5-7 minutes or until tender. Add the chicken, chicken broth, chipotle peppers, canned tomatoes, sugar, salt and pepper. Bring just to a boil and then reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Stir in fresh cilantro and serve immediately. Can be topped with any of garnishes above.

    *If you desire your soup to be thinner in consistency, add a little more broth, Mexican beer, or water --- remember to cover this soup when simmering. This soup is meant to be thicker than the Tortilla Soup.

    **To take the heat up a notch, use Mexican diced Tomatoes with Chiles.

    ***Pinch of sugar cuts the sharpness, allowing soup to be rich and mellow in flavor without adding noticeable sweetness.



    Chipotle Chili Oil And Vinegar



    4 Chipotle chiles, soaked in hot water for 20 minutes
    6 Cloves garlic, peeled
    16 Oz (fl) extra-virgin olive oil
    2 Sprigs fresh rosemary

    2 Sprigs fresh thyme
    .
    Place 2 chiles and 3 cloves of garlic in the bottle of olive oil. Add the rosemary and cap/cork tightly. Place 2 chiles and 3 cloves of garlic in the bottle of vinegar. Allow oil and vinegar to steep in a cool, dark place (not the refrigerator), for at least 2 days, longer if possible. Both will keep several months. Use for salads, marinating meats and vegetables, sauteing
    or in any recipe that calls for flavourful oil or vinegar.



    Chipotle Mexican Grill Fresh Summer Salad With Avocado, Mango and Jicama

    Unless you wanted to pay for the recipe ... sight unseen, no one was able to print last weeks recipe. No need to pay for these recipes since Chipotle Grill provided several of their recipes years ago.
    I have made the rice before and it is EXACTLY like what you get in the restaurant.
    I have never tried the Barbacoa recipe though.


    Chipotle's Barbacoa Burrito


    BARBACOA:
    4 guijillo chiles
    2 teaspoons cumin seeds
    1 teaspoon ground cloves
    10 allspice berries

    6 garlic cloves
    1 spanish onion, roughly chopped
    1/3 cup cider vinegar
    1 (6 to 8-pound) beef roast
    salt and pepper
    1 (2-pound) package dried avocado leaves

    Large tortilla for wrap, beans, rice and vegetables of your choice.

    Toast chiles, cover with boiling water in a deep bowl, and set aside for 20 minutes.

    Grind cumin, cloves, allspice, and oregano in coffee grinder. Drain soaked chiles, puree in blender the chiles, ground spices, thyme, garlic, onion, vinegar, and 1/2 cup of water. Process until smooth Push mixture through a
    sieve, season goat with salt and pepper. Rub paste all over the meat.

    Arrange in a bowl and allow to marinate for 4 hours, refrigerated.

    Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

    In a deep roaster pan scatter half of the avocado leaves on the bottom, place meat on top of the avocado leaves and scatter the remaining leaves over the meat. Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil. Cook the goat 6 to 7 hours until meat is falling off the bone. If using lamb shoulder cook for 4 hours.

    ***Fresh avocado leaves are toxic, they must be dried to be used for
    cooking.

    Heat tortilla tills its warm and soft.

    Place barbacoa, beans, rice and vegetables of choice on tortilla.

    Wrap tortilla in long circular manner to create burrito.

    It's probably a good idea to make these yourself--when you buy the food at Chipotle it is astonishingly unhealthy, probably due to the sodium content and sheer size of the portions. A vegetarian burrito is like 1100 calories!
