- splash olive oil
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 lb chicken, cubed (boneless/skinless breasts or thighs are great)
- 2 14oz can black beans
- 1 cup salsa (we use mild)
- 1 28oz can diced tomatoes
- 2 cups water
- 2 tsp cumin
- 2 tsp chili powder
- 1 1/2 cup rice or 1 lb rice pasta
- sliced olives, salsa, and guacamole for garnish
Warm oil in a large skillet or pot over medium heat Add onion and garlic, and stir.
When the onions and garlic have started to soften, add the cubed chicken, and sauté until the chicken is browned.
Add all other ingredients and turn the heat to medium high. When the liquid boils, turn down to low and cover.
Let simmer covered for 20 minutes, stirring intermittently. Test rice/pasta for done-ness, and serve with olives, salsa, and guacamole as garnishes.
