  • 1 Tablespoons Chili Powder

Instructions

FOR THE MARINADE:

  1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor (EXCEPT THE OIL) and pulse until smooth.   Drizzle the oil in until combined.
  1. Cut the chicken into 1″ pieces and place in a glass bowl.  Add marinade and stir.  Refrigerate at least 3 hours.
  2. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium heat until very hot.  You should not need oil as there is already oil in the marinade, however you may need to add a little just to coat the pan.  Place enough of the chicken in the pan that is not crowded.  You may need to do this in at least 2 batches.  Do not turn the chicken until the sides have turned white and there is just a little pink in the center.  This will result in a great char.  Cook until no longer pink.
  3. To make the burrito bowl, layer shredded lettuce, rice, onions and peppers, corn, black beans, diced tomatoes, guacamole, sour cream, shredded cheese.
