    2 boneless skinless chicken breasts - cut in half to yield four thin long portions
    2 cups salsa of your choice
    1 T and 1 tsp ground cumin
    1 T and 1 tsp chili powder
    1 T and 1 tsp lemon juice
    2 cloves crushed garlic
    1 15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
    1/2 c cheddar cheese (optional)
