Step 1: Cook chicken breasts

Heat a frying pan to medium on the stove top. Spray with cooking spray and fry chicken breasts until cooked through. (I used my grill pan.)

Step 2: Prep ingredients

  1. Add red peppers and green onions to mini chopper and mince (or mince by hand). Set Aside.
  2. Dice the cooked chicken into small cubes, add to a medium mixing bowl.
  3. Add the frozen corn and black beans to the bowl.
  4. Mince the spinach, dice the jalapenos, and add them to the bowl.

Thank you! I've been meaning to try my hand at these forever, because they're my favorite appetizer too.

Spraying a Teflon coated frying pan with sprays will eventually ruin it. Placing a bit of oil and spreading it around with a paper towel will make the pan last longer

You can bake these too, they take about 25 - 35 minutes at 350

I really shouldn't read Instructables that look this delicious when I am hungry and have nothing in the fridge... Looks like a fun recipe to do though, great job!
