One thing that anyone who knows me can tell you…I LOVE Mexican food! I will eat tacos every single day of the week. When I moved to Atlanta 11 years ago, one thing I hated was the lack of authentic Mexican food. It took several test runs to find the perfect taco shop, and truthfully, it’s not THAT good. However, when I was introduced Chipotle for the first time I was hooked! Fresh ingredients and they make a pretty decent guacamole. Of course, like all things, this was a short lived love considering no Chipotle is the same and they all give different portions. There’s always a solution to this tho right…make your own and eat as much as you want!

So here ya go folks…the best Chipotle Chicken copycat recipe I could find. And it is daaaamn good!
