Southwest Chicken with Black Beans

We have had a rockin' weekend. Jag girls dinner. Working on the house. Watching basketball. Smack-talkin' Bracketology. The Fightin' 55th's Annual Birthday Ball. But of course, no pictures. So I thought I'd share a wonderful recipe that is from a collected recipe cookbook from our time in Great Falls. Enjoy!


Southwest Chicken with Black Beans

1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 small can diced green chilies
1 clove crushed garlic
3 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp. lime peel
1 medium tomato, chopped
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 lb. chicken, cup into strips (to add a little zing and save a little time, I use the Tyson Southwest already cooked chicken strips.)

Cook chicken (if using raw chicken), onion, chilies and garlic in oil until chicken is cooked. Add beans, lime juice & peel and tomatoes. heat until hot. Serve with all the side stuff (sour cream, cheese, tortillas) or by itself.

That is the type of meal we eat about once a week - beans and chicken! This one looks delicious.
