“A vacation is like love – anticipated with pleasure, experienced with discomfort and remembered with nostalgia”
Hello my Lovely friends!! I am back home from my longgggggg vacation (its seems like ages!!) and I am so glad to be back home to my Kitchen, to my Blog!! How I missed cooking & blogging!!
It is time to resume my former life. Although its really hard to get my life back into routine.. Errr!! 🙁 I feel so homesick and immensely miss being in the comfort of my home. It feels good to be around family. Spending quality time with my parents, eating delicious food and have long conversations with my friends. I so wish I lived down the street from my family instead of thousands of miles away. 🙁
I have got loads to share but first let me share a pic of these cute little kitties. My mum’s cats.Look how beautifully they posed for the camera. Ain’t they adorable?! I had an amazing time playing with these kitties. I miss them so much. Well I have loads to write up about India and the amazing food. So keep tuned..
Ok lets get back to my Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken and Black Beans Bowls. Slow cooker meals are the best! Ain’t they??
This chipotle chicken burrito bowls is one of my favourite slow cooker meals. It is extremely delicious and flavourful and so easy to make. Just throw in all these amazing ingredients together in a slow cooker and enjoy a delicious and healthy meal by the end of the day.
Tender chicken breasts are slowly simmered in a flavourful concoction of chipotle sauce along with black beans, corn and a mixture of wild rice and basmati rice. I love this Chipotle burrito bowl with some sliced avocados or salsa and a dollop of sour cream (you can use yogurt to make it more healthy). Yumm!!
