Chipotle Lovers...Look No Further...30 minute meal

If you love chipotle like we do then you need to check this out! I have been trying to re-create some chipotle menu items. This one is pretty tasty and quick! It tastes like a combo of chipotle chicken with chipotle hot salsa. Caution: This is pretty spicy so put some chicken on the side first for the kiddos!

BTW...the chicken is BOGO at Publix Supermarkets this week ;)

Spicy Chipotle Chicken
3 tbsp oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 red or spanish onion, thinly sliced
10 oz can Rotel (diced) tomatoes with green chiles, drained
2 Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped
4 tbsp adobo sauce from chipotle peppers
1 package of Perdue Shortcuts Carved Chicken Breast, Southwestern Style, CUBED
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

1) Add oil to skillet and cook onions and garlic over medium-low heat for 10 minutes to start carmelization process.
2) Add diced tomatoes, chipotle peppers, adobo sauce and chicken. Stir to combine.
3) Cook over medium to medium high for 3-5 minutes to warm all ingredients and reduce any liquid.
4) Stir in cilantro.
Serve with shredded white cheddar cheese, lime-cilantro rice, chopped green leaf lettuce, and guacamole!

Lime-Cilantro Rice

2) Cook rice approx. 20 minutes until done. Fluff rice with fork and allow to rest with lid on for another 5 minutes to redistribute moisture throughout.
