Chipotle Chicken – for Tacos and Burritos

The Best Chipotle Chicken

Here’s a Chipotle Chicken Recipe you’ll just love and use again and again.  It’s tender, juicy and full of flavor.  The spice can be adjusted according to your specific tastes.  I’ve portioned out the heat to a medium kick so adjust accordingly by adding or subtracting Chipotle Peppers.  I’m using canned Chipotle Peppers with Adobo sauce so the smokey taste will spread further.  Marination isn’t necessary but it never hurts if you want to throw this in the refrigerator over night or for even just a half an hour.  It’s up to you.

Chipotle Chicken for Tacos & Burrito’s

There are a ton of different ways to use this Chipotle Chicken recipe but my favorite way to put this meat to use is with street style tacos, like the photo above or in a burrito.  I even like to have it in a rice bowl, with a lot of other veggies, Tex-Mex style.  But if you want to go “fast food” with this Chipotle Chicken, I highly recommend loading a burrito, 7 Layer style, with all the works.  I’m talking about rice, beans, cheese, guacamole, lettuce and sour cream.  That’s one of my favorite ways to prepare this recipe, Chipotle style Taco Hell. 😉

If you’re looking for more ways to stuff your tortilla’s, try my crock-pot Chili No Beans recipe or my Chicken Enchiladas.  You might even be interested in my Street Tacos and my Barbacoa recipe.  These recipes don’t disappoint so definitely give them a try.
