Good Eats Boston: Chipotle Mexican Grill

Today’s good eats restaurant feature needs no introduction but deserves some love for sure. Chipotle Mexican Grill is one of the most popular fast casual restaurants in the country and for good reason. The food is real, full of flavor and tastes like something you would eat at home. Everything is prepared by hand, they even hand-mash their guacamole every day from scratch which I love. 

Whenever the hubby and I order from Chipotle he orders a salad bowl and I order a burrito. The burritos are enormous, I can never finish it at one go. The way the restaurant works is you go to the counter and tell them what you want in your burrito and they make it in front of you. I am always amazed at how much they put in them and still be able to wrap it perfectly. 

The great thing with Chipotle is that there are vegan options and meat lover options. Most importantly it is a very affordable place with very good. 

So if ever you are looking for a quick delicious meal I highly recommend Chipotle Mexican Grill. The food is excellent. They have so many locations around the country so you are bound to find one near you. If you are looking for something a little more formal, Moon Bar is a nice alternative. 

Recipe: Chipotle spiced chicken drumsticks

If you love smoky and spicy flavors then this chipotle spiced chicken drumstick recipe will be right up your alley. I usually love light and fresh flavors like lemon and herb chicken however there are times when I need a little smokiness in my life. Chipotle spice is made from dried and smoked jalapeño chiles therefore it has a depth in flavor like no other. I have started to make a batch of drumsticks on Friday nights and love to keep them in the fridge so whenever we are hungry we can snack on them throughout the weekend. Not only  is this a delicious snack, it is a much healthier option than a bag of chips.
