Black Bean Chicken
Very Good 4.3/5
(630 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: A variation of recipe is to use one can of black beans and one can of corn. For less sodium you may drain and rinse both, but then you should add one cup of vegetable or chicken. Also, you may want to add a tsp. of cumin and juice from a half lime for a more authentic South of the Border flavor.

Very Good 4.5/5
(34 ratings)

Step aside, Manwich! You've got nothing on these babies! *I typically use brown sugar instead of regular sugar, and I buy as lean of beef as I can find. My fiance won't eat anyone else's Sloppy Joes after he tried these! Also, these are really large servings, you could easily cut this in half for a smaller portion with fewer calories...

We love shredding this sweet and savory chicken to turn it into tacos, but it's also delicious as is with a side of grilled veggies.
