Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    Coconut Oil, 2 tbsp
    2 chicken breasts, chopped into bite-sized pieces, bone and skin removed
    1 large Onion, chopped
    1 Green Bell Peppers, chopped (sub any color bell peppers you'd like)
    4 cloves Garlic, chopped
    Pinto Beans, 3 cups cooked*
    Chili powder, 3 tbsp
    Garlic powder, 1 tbsp
    Tomato Sauce, 3.5 cup

Tips

I use home-made beans of my choice in this recipe (Slow-Cooker Pinto Bean recipe, http://talacherecipes.blogspot.com/2012/09/slow-cooker-mexican-pinto-beans). However, canned, rinsed beans can be used instead. I recommend making beans in large quantities and freezing them for use in recipes such as this one for a quick, healthful meal.


Directions

Saute chicken in coconut oil over med-low heat until cooked through. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic and saute until onions are translucent. Add tomato sauce, pinto beans, and remaining spices and simmer for 15 minutes. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to three days.
