Mexican Chipotle Bowl Recipe

Mexican Chipotle Bowl Recipe

I am very happy to share this healthy, fresh,delicious recipe with you. Chipotle is an Mexican restaurant where we can find this recipe. I had this many times and fell in love with this fresh and tasty recipe. I made this recipe many times at home, as home made food will taste too good. My husband love my chipotle bowl recipe and even I die for this fresh and healthy bowl....
.... May be you think why she is using fresh so many times. Because the bowl, not only filled with healthy ingredients but also with freshness. We can feel it. For this recipe we have to prepare:
Cilantro-lime Rice
Grilled Chicken (optional)
Guacamole (optional)
Black bean
Sour Cream
Hey stop, may be you decided to leave my page without reading my recipe. You may see a long list above but preparation will be very easy, trust me. In less than 45 min we can prepare this recipe.
First we can start with cooking rice and beans which will take hardly 20 min. While cooking them we can prepare salsa which take 10 min, guacamole 5 min, and if you want to add chicken it will take 15 min. The remaining time to cut veggies and making some preparations....
..... Don't blame be if you have took more time to prepare this by chit-chatting with your loved ones :-) . I do this many times.
