It's also pretty healthy for you because it's made from all fresh ingredients. Yay!
Step 1: What you'll need!
- 2 jalapenos
- about a pound of tomatoes - 3 medium ones, 7-8 small ones, or a 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes.
- one onion
- garlic to taste, I used 5 cloves.
- chicken stock - 2 to 6 cups.
- 2-3 chicken breasts or 5-6 tenderloins (skinless, boneless.)
- cumin, chili powder, coriander
- 2 limes
- an avocado (optional)
- 14 oz. can black beans
- 2 tbsp. of veggie/canola oil
- cutting board
- large saucepan with lid
- stirring utensil
Step 2: Cut the veggies and prep the beans and chicken!
Dice the tomatoes - remember to let the weight of the knife slide right through them - pressing too hard or trying to saw through them won't work!
Mince the garlic.
Cut the tops off the jalapenos and then cut them in half lengthwise and remove most of the membranes and seeds. I left in quite a bit - the more you leave, the spicier it'll be. Cut these to a small dice.
You'll need to wash the beans and then drain them. :)
Depending on what kind of chicken you're using, you'll need to do different things. If you're using frozen, you'll need to rinse the ice off of them. If you're using fresh, trim off any excess fat. Set the chicken aside on paper towels.
Step 3: Cooking the veggies!
Then, throw in the jalapenos and cook those for a minute or so, and then chuck in the garlic. Stir this around until you really start to smell it, and then dump in the tomatoes and all their juice and the beans.
