I love Chipotle!  It is delicious, so I decided to recreate a burrito bowl.  I utilized my fajitas seasoning, skirt steak, some black beans, cilantro lime rice, salsa and guacamole to create one of the greatest meals known to man.  Dana said it was her favorite meal ever!  That says a lot.  The combination of rice, black beans, meat and cheese is Amazing!

Fajita Steak

Preheat the grill to medium high heat.  Roughly 350 degrees when the lid is closed.

Skirt Steak

Place the steak directly over heat and cook for about 4-6 minutes per side or until an internal temperature of 145 degrees.  The timing will depend on the thickness of the skirt steak.
