Recipe Notes

If your meat is lean and doesn't release much grease, add a couple tablespoons of vegetable oil to prevent it from drying out. If the meat tastes bland to you, feel free to add more spices. The best part about making Chipotle burritos at home is that you can adjust the flavor to suit your taste buds.

To enhance the flavor of the meat (and make dinner preparation easier), I usually dump the meat and its grease into my crock pot and keep it on warm for an hour before serving.
