Ingredients

    1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
    1 (14.5 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
    1 cup canned or frozen corn, thawed
    2 fresh jalepeno peppers, diced
    1/4 cup salsa
    3/4 cup water
    2 Tbsp taco seasoning
    1 lb. skinless chicken breast
    1 cup dry quinoa
    1 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar
    fat free sour cream for topping (optional)*

    *I included 1 Tbsp of sour cream per serving in the nutrition calculations

Directions

Preheat oven to 400.

In a large saucepan, combine first 7 ingredients (tomatoes through taco seasoning) over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, add chicken, and reduce heat to low. Simmer for about 30 minutes until chicken is cooked through and very tender.

Remove chicken, set aside. Add quinoa to pot and cook until it "blooms". Watch to see if you need to add more water, product should remain slightly saucy.

Tear chicken into large chunks and add back to mixture. Transfer to a 2-quart baking dish. Top with cheese and bake for about 10-15 minutes until browned and bubbly.

If desired, top with fat-free sour cream.
