Welcome to Moe's!

Welcome to Moe's!  How many of you have heard these wonderful words? I love hearing them because this means I'm about to eat some of their wonderful chicken burritos...then I thought, why wait until I go to Moe's to eat this wonderful meal?  So, here's my attempt at Moe's chicken burritos with a low-calorie twist...Good luck!

You're going to need the following ingredients:
  1. 2 hearts of romaine lettuce (chopped)
  2. 4 large tomatoes (diced and de-seeded)
  3. 1 large onion (chopped finely)
  4. 1 bar of cheddar cheese (shredded)
  5. 1 can of sweet corn
  6. 1 can of black beans
  7. 2 lbs. of boneless, skinless chicken breast
  8. 1 package of fresh cilantro
  9. 5 limes
  10. 1 jar of cilantro base
  11. 1 package of soft wheat burritos
  12. Salt and pepper
  13. 2 packages of taco seasoning
The biggest part of this meal is in the preparation.  First, cut your chicken breasts in to small bite sized pieces and put them aside for later when you will saute them.  Then chop and dice your lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and fresh cilantro and put them all in separate bowls.  Also shred your cheese and put that in a separate bowl as well.

You can also empty the corn and black beans in to separate bowls and make them ready to put on the table.  Cut your limes in to quarters and put them in a bowl to serve as well.

In a large bowl, mix your chopped tomatoes, cilantro, salt and pepper, 2 tablespoons of the cilantro base, and the juice of 1/2 lime.  This will make your salsa.

Now that all of your ingredients are ready, saute the chicken.  After it is fully cooked, add your taco seasoning and 3/4 cup of water and let simmer.

Once your chicken is ready, take several burritos and place them in the microwave for 15 seconds.  
The timer goes off and you are ready to serve your yummy chicken burritos.
