Another crummy picture... I'm sorry! I took like 8 and that was seriously the best!
Anyways, Dave and I have decided we need to loose a little weight... especially after my recent adventures in French influenced cooking, and the fact that our home gym is out of service due to reflooring. So for a couple of weeks we're gonna try to steer clear of fat and lots of carbs. I know... so sad.
So I was digging around allrecipes and found this little gem that looked promising, especially since I had just about all the ingredients in stock. =)
I adjusted it a little, added some tomato paste, corn and extra chili powder, cumin, and cayenne.
* 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into bite-size pieces
* 2 tablespoon chili powder
* 1 tablespoon cumin
* 2 tsp cayenne
* salt and pepper to taste
* 1 tablespoon olive oil (I used avocado oil, its better for you)
* 1 chopped green bell pepper
* 1 cup corn
* 1/2 chopped onion
* 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
* 1 large tomato, cut into chunks
* 4 tbsp tomato paste
* 10 drops hot pepper sauce (I used Cholula)
1. Season chicken with 1/2 tablespoon chile powder, cumin, cayenne, salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat and saute seasoned chicken for 3 to 4 minutes, or until no longer pink. Remove from skillet with a slotted spoon and keep warm.
2. In same skillet, stir fry bell pepper and onion until soft. Add jalapeno peppers, tomatoes, remaining 1/2 tablespoon chile powder and hot pepper sauce. Cook, stirring, for an additional 3 to 5 minutes; add chicken and stir fry for 2 minutes more.
We had this with some red beans, mashed avocado and a dollop of sour cream.
I imagine this would ROCK rolled up in some warm tortillas... mmmmm =)
