Qdoba Burrito Copycat Recipe

Qdoba Burrito Copycat Recipe

This Qdoba Burrito Copycat Recipe is one of our favorite go-to meals if we need something quick, delicious and hearty! My kids love, love, LOVE Qdoba…actually we all do, but honestly for all five of us to eat there it’s easily $50 without us ordering drinks! It’s just not an affordable option.

Our alternative is this super yummy recipe that I have been making for years! I can change up the variety by using either chicken or flank steak. I typically grab both of these from Sam’s Club (you can read about how I get discounted meat at Sam’s Club here) and have them on hand in the freezer.

After chopping everything up, just toss it in a cake pan, and 20 minutes later, you are ready to eat! Feel free to adapt to what your family likes…my husband is not a big pepper fan, so we leave them out!

While the meat is in the oven, I throw some rice on the stove to cook. My boys really need these carbs at this stage of life because of all the calories they burn in sports.
