Submitted by: BEAR8MM

Introduction

Southwestern comfort food! Southwestern comfort food!
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    16 oz boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into strips
    zest and juice of one lime
    1 T Chef Meg's no salt fajita rub
    1 cup cooked black beans, rinsed and drained
    1 med red onion, sliced and coarsely chopped
    2 cups sweet peppers, tops removed, sliced into strips
    3 T canola oil

Tips

This calculator wouldn't let me add an existing recipe, so here is the recipe for the fajita rub.
4 tsp chili powder (or cayenne pepper)
4 tsp cumin seed
2 tsp whole oregano
1 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tsp garlic powder

Put all items in clean coffee grinder, and blend to powder.

This makes about 4 tablespoons, you only need 1 tablespoon per pound of meat. Store remainder in airtight jar away from light and heat. Using cayenne pepper instead of chili powder gives it a noticeable kick!
