Grilled Steak Burrito Bowls

I love love love Chipotle and I love their burrito bowls. A few weeks ago I found a great copycat barbacoa beef recipe that I've been wanting to try but the only beef I had was a skirt steak. So, I decided to save the barbacoa recipe for another day and try to create a steak burrito bowl instead using the skirt steak that I had on hand. I marinated the steak in a chipotle marinade and then grilled it. It turned out great and I can't wait to make this one again! Yum!

Grilled Steak Burrito Bowls

1-2lb Marinated Skirt Steak, Trimmed (I think Flank steak would work well too)
2 Cups Cooked Cilantro Lime Rice ( Recipe Below)
1 Cup Black Beans
1 Cup Shredded Cheese (We used finely shredded Monterey Jack)
Any additional toppings of your choice ( Lettuce, Chopped Tomato, Sour Cream, Red or Green Onion)

For the Rice
2 cups white rice
1 lime
2 Tbsp. chopped cilantro
Salt to taste
Cook your rice according to the package directions. Stir in the lime juice (add the zest if you want it more lime tasting), cilantro, and a pinch of salt. Fluff with a fork.

For the Chipotle Marinade
2 garlic cloves roughly chopped
3 chipotle peppers chopped
2 tbsp of the adobo sauce

Combine all ingredients and pour over steak. Place steak in ziploc bag and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
Grill steak 4 minutes per side or until desired doneness (we like medium rare) Slice steak and assemble your burrito bowls with the steak, cilantro lime rice, black beans, and additional toppings of your choice.  Enjoy!
