    1 can of chopped green chilis (I used 7oz)
    2 cans of diced tomatoes (14oz)
    3lbs chicken breast, diced to 1 inch pieces
    1 onion diced
    1 packet of taco seasoning
    1 can of black beans drained and rinsed
    2 cups Monterey Jack cheese shredded
    2 tbsp of Extra virgin olive oil


This is a Betty Crocker recipe that I modified, it called for Chorizo, but I don't like that, so I made it without. It is super yummy, and still mild enough for everyone to enjoy. If you like spicy you may want to add some jalapenos.


In Dutch oven, add 1 tbsp of olive oil, then add chicken and cook on all sides 6 to 10 minutes or until browned on outside and cooked through. Transfer to plate.
Add remaining tablespoon of oil to same Dutch oven. Add onion, cook 4 to 5 minutes or until onion softens. Stir in seasoning mix and chilis; cook 1 minute longer. Open tomatoes, and add with liquid. Heat to simmering.
Add chicken and beans. Return to simmering, and cook 5 minutes to allow flavors to combine. Remove from heat and stir in cheese. Serve with lime over rice or tortillas.
