This is a quick, healthy, and super tasty meal!
What you need...
Frying pan (I prefer one with deep sides and a lid)
1 can pinto beans
2 to 4 oz chicken
1/2 tsp green garlic* or regular garlic
1/4 to 1/2 tsp Seasoning Salt (to taste)
1/2 tsp Mrs. Dash (or comparable garlic seasoning)
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
Whole wheat flour tortillas
*The green garlic was something I had on hand and isn't necessary to the recipe.
Spray the bottom of your pan with cooking spray
Turn on the burner to medium low heat
Cut up the chicken into cubes
Toss into the warm pan
Cook until slightly brown and the chicken is no longer pink inside
Add in the beans with the cooked chicken and increase the heat just a bit.
Also add in your seasonings, stir it up, and add a lid (if your pan comes with one).
Let the beans heat up and allow it to simmer for about 5 to 7 minutes.
Heat up your tortillas (either on the stove in a slightly oiled frying pan) or in the micro for about 30 seconds. Top with your favorite toppings and you're ready to go!
*Cooked onions and green peppers
I love this recipe especially because it is so quick and easy but also its healthy! It's low in sugar, cholesterol, saturated fat, but it's also high in fiber!
This is a great way to save money and make your meat last longer. I only ate 1 oz of chicken (half of what was in my pan) but the beans really helped to make the meal full and satisfying!
*Note: These nutrition facts are based on 1oz of chicken per serving and excludes any toppings you may add. But, just so you know, salsa is only 15 calories for 2 tbsp!! Yum!
