Tag Archives: quick meals


This meal is a staple at my house for a few reasons:
  1. We can be eating within 30 min. of the time I started cooking.
  2. I can cook it without much thought (after getting familiar with it).
  3. It uses food that I always have on hand, and if I’m missing something, I can still make it work ūüôā
  4. It’s a quick clean up.
  5. It’s super healthy.
  6. My family LOVES it!

  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • onion
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder (this adds a little kick, but add more if you like it hot!)
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 (10.5 oz) can condensed chicken broth
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup corn (I use frozen)
  • 1 (4 oz) can chopped green chili peppers
  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans… RINSED!
  • fresh chopped cilantro
  • boneless chicken breasts cut into bite-size pieces


What I do…
Saute onion & garlic in olive oil over medium heat until soft.
While the onions are saut√©ing, I cook my chicken in a skillet. ¬†Season it with salt, pepper, garlic… whatever. ¬†
I do love to use coriander!
Then add chicken broth, water, crushed tomatoes, oregano, and chili powder.
Bring to a boil and simmer 5-10 min.
Then add corn, chilies, beans, cilantro, and chicken.
Simmer for 10 min and then serve.


We each enjoy different toppings.  Guacamole, sour cream, chips- I love it with crushed up chips, but most of the time we leave out the chips.  Honestly, I love it just as much with no chips.  Try it and let me know what you think!
