Blair loves a little spice in his life! The other day, while out to lunch with his assistant Pete he had this amazing meal that is simple to prepare, nutritious, and down-right tastes awesome. The chicken is like barbeque with a taste of Mexico. The Black Beans and Rice makes for a perfect side dish!
So behold... the meal of the day:
