Better-Than-Chipotle Burrito
This is not a hate on Chipotle, because boy do I love the stuff, but when I was asked to create a burrito recipe, I couldn't help but try and replicate theirs. I based this recipe exactly off my order at Chipotle — a chicken fajita burrito — and I did the leg work and interviewed a former employee of the chain to get the scoop. That's when I learned that Chipotle is so good, they even keep most of their recipe secrets from their employees, too. Because of that, a lot of this was based off of instinct, but I was happy to hear that my burritos tasted even better than Chipotle's.  Click here to see 6 Burrito Recipes: Simple or Sophisticated, You Decide.

Copycat Chipotle Honey Vinaigrette
Americas’ most popular burrito chain also serves an addictive salad dressing that tastes incredible on just about anything. Because we love it so much, we have tested and perfected a version of Chipotle’s Chipotle-Honey Vinaigrette that’s easy enough for any home cook to prepare and rivals the original. This vinaigrette is so versatile that it’s perfect drizzled simply on top of crisp romaine salad, but also works great as a dip and makes a wonderful appetizer served with a crudité. You can also use this dressing to marinate chicken, fish, and even beef.

Mango Salsa
Recipe Courtesy of Jorge Fitz, Beto Estua, and Mango.orgThe charred flavors of the onion and tomatillo give this salsa a powerful smokiness that is matched perfectly with the sweetness of the mango. Chipotles in adobo sauce add an element of heat that will have you going in dip-after-dip.

Chipotle-Honey Wings
If you like heat on your wings, then these chile-covered wings are the ones for you. The best part is that they are incredibly easy to make. Pop them in the oven with salt and pepper and then five minutes before they are done, make your sauce. Slather on the wings and then put under the broiler to get the crispy, crunchy finish.  A must, however, is serving them with a cooling dip like ranch or blue cheese, otherwise you'll be sweating and panting — trust me, I've been there.

I love the combination of smoke and spice with whiskey, and this infusion has both in spades. Use a good rye whiskey as it isn’t as sweet as bourbon, and will allow the smokey, citrus characteristics to shine through. Feel free to remove the seeds from the peppers to dial down the heat.

ground rabbit stew
“Ground rabbit is delicious, but not always easy to find. Have your butcher order a rabbit and grind it for you for this recipe. Rabbit is low fat and I prefer using it ground, as it does not dry out.” – Melanie Underwood, Chef Instructor at the Institute of Culinary Education in NYC

lentil stew
While I was researching Mexican cuisine I came across a traditional dish called Sopa de Lentejas, which is basically a lentil soup/stew with Mexican seasoning. I noticed that in some recipes chorizo was used. I decided to make my own simplified version of this traditional stew using chorizo and Supremo's Crema Supremo sour cream to top the dish. This sour cream has a distinctive tang to it that just says Mexican food! — Diane Balch, Simple Living and EatingFor more recipes like this one visit Simple Living and Eating.

The Smoky: Grilled Cheese with Smoked Cheddar, Ham, and Bacon
Smokiness is a virtue we all can appreciate in our food, and this grilled cheese takes it to the fourth degree. Everything except for the bread has a smoky quality to it: the Cheddar is smoked, as are the ham and bacon, as well as the chipotle mayo. And as opposed to slathering it in butter, this cheese is "grilled" in a lighter, mess-free way: It's wrapped in aluminum foil and pressed down onto a pan until it's golden brown and delicious.  If you like your food smoky, this one's for you!
