    Bean Filling:

    1 can (1-1/2 cups) black beans
    1/2 cup chopped onion

    1 clove garlic
    1 tablespoon tomato paste
    1/2 teaspoon cumin

For chicken:
Poach and shred the chicken, combine with the peppers and lime juice and set aside.

Mash half of the beans well. In a non-stick skillet, sauté the onion until it's translucent; add the garlic and bell pepper and cook for another two minutes.

Add all remaining ingredients, including the beans. Stir and cook until hot throughout and set aside.

For muffins:
Mix the milk, cider vinegar, and agave nectar together and set aside.

Oil your pans and preheat the oven to 375 F.
