For the steak:
Combine all the ingredients except the steak in the bowl of a blender or food processor. Blend until very well combined. Place the steak in an airtight container and cover with the chipotle mixture. Seal the container and marinade overnight.
Preheat the grill to 400°F. Grill for about 5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the steak, until the steak registers an internal temperature of about 130°F for medium-rare. Remove to a plate and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing against the grain intro strips. Slice the strips into cubes. Taste and add additional salt if needed.
For the rice:
Place the cooked rice in a medium bowl and toss with the lime juice, vegetable oil, cilantro, and salt. Keep warm until ready to use or refrigerate up to 1 day. Reheat before using.
For the corn salsa:
Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl. Taste and adjust ingredients and seasoning as needed. Refrigerate until ready to use, up to 1 day.
Divide the rice between four bowls. Top with the warmed beans, steak cubes, corn salsa, and any other desired add ins. Serve.

I loved it!
AMAZING! I made this and will continue to make it. It is so full of flavour.
OMG this was such a lovely healthy meal. Was confusing at first to make but wow when It all merges together it is worth it in the end. FANTASTIC
My hubby always orders the steak burrito from Chipotle…ALWAYS, haha. So I decided to make your recipe. I added some smoked paprika instead of the ancho chile powder. He absolutely loved it!!! Thank you for posting. This will definitely be a go to recipe!!!
Just tried this tonight and all thumbs up from all of us. Great job!
I made this for dinner tonight. Was not happy with the cut of steak that I chose, but the recipe was great! Corn salsa made the dish. Thanks!
My boyfriend and I love this recipe! Both of us are Chipotle lovers, but the closest one to us is over an hour and a half away. This recipe is perfect for satisfying our cravings! We made it for the second time tonight. This time we used ground turkey instead of steak. I added the seasoning mixture after it was cooked, as you would taco seasonings. Came out great!
Tessa, I am exactly the same way—I could not LIVE without a planner. So sad to see the ones you linked to are out of stock. I use a Blue Sky Images planner. Why do you have to create such tantalizingly delicious food because you wanna know what? I get the feeling this will be on my table at some point in the near future. YUM!
Ugh I know I wish the Day Designers weren’t so difficult to buy. I hope this recipe makes its way to your table soon!!
This looks like an awesome dinner!
I can’t wait to try this. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love Chipolte.
I NEED to check out that planner. Just the other day I asked my husband to help me organize me life. I’m not even sure what possessed me to ask a man that can’t even put his clothes in the laundry 😉
Anyway. We both happen to lurveee Chipotle. So these are perfection. Pinned!
Haha! Seriously you need this planner in your life it’s so pretty and cute and it’s much more than just writing tasks and schedules.
