Eating out…in

Well all who know me know that I absolutely LOVE Chipotle/qdoba (i know i know these two places are completely different yet similar, but i love them both😍)

I really wanted Chipotle this past Friday but the weather was just so chilly and wet, dreary and just the perfect day to go home after work cook a nice meal and stay inside

But that didn’t help me get my chipotle, so I decided to search for chipotle similar recipes and give it a shot!

I dont typically keep these required items in my pantry but all I was missing for this delicious dinner was some produce. I stopped at walmart on my way home.

And thus began my afternoon spent in the kitchen

First I made my marinade for my steak

You will need the following ingredients

1. 1 medium red onion

2. 3 cloves garlic

3.

4.

Blend all ingredients in food processor and add enough water to equal 1 cup(more if you want more liquid)

Place in a ziplock bag and place meat of your choice up to 4lb inside marinate 30 minutes to 24 hours

Cook meat to desired temperature discard excess marinade(do not reuse)

Next I started my roja hot salsa
