Yeah I went there.Ok so I had this unhealthy craving for Chipotle the other day {who doesn’t?!} and knew I had to do something about this or I would end up buying one of everything on the menu.  Ok not really, but I seriously needed a good Chipotle fix.

So I basically chopped up everything I had leftover in my fridge and pantry and threw it all into a bowl to make this colorful, and yes completely CLEAN, dish.  It has all the flavors of Chipotle without the extra calories!  I used all fresh ingredients, a bit of sea salt, a drizzle of olive oil and some limes.  Kind of amazing I must admit.
This recipe makes a great salsa or even a fabulous topping on chicken, pork or steak.  You could even garnish your tacos with this….and to quote the Frank’s Red Hot lady, you can literally put this sh*t on everything!

But in all seriousness, this is a great side dish to add flavor to any meal, especially when prepping your food for the week.  I paired this with whole wheat pita bread and some chicken and it was a huge hit.  Oh and all the chopping is the hardest part of this recipe, you can whip this entire thing together in 5 minutes!

How can you refuse?
