Yummy - my whole family (except the picky teenager) likes this one!

  • 4 chicken breast, skinless, organic, free-range
  • 15 1/2 oz. black beans, canned, organic
  • 1 shallots, fresh, organic
  • 1 med. bell pepper, red, fresh, organic
  • 1 med. bell pepper, green, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin powder, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, organic
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt, unrefined and pure

I created this and never measure-I just eye it on how much seasoning to use. If you like it spicy add more chili powder, if not add less. I chop the onion and two peppers very finely and then add some sea salt and a little of the other seasonings into skillet. I sauté this in a tsp. of coconut oil until soft. I then cover the chicken breasts in the seasonings- again put on how much or little you like. I add them to the skillet with peppers and onion and cook for about 3 mins. I then add the black beans with juice-this helps the chicken stay moist. Cook until no longer pink. I then measure out 5 oz. of chicken and an overflowing 1/2 cup of bean mixture to get five protein and one carb.-if you need 2 carbs. measure 1 cup. To get my fat I add guacamole(mushed avocado with sea salt) on top. If you are doing dairy you could add raw cheese which is yummy too-just measure out the amount of oz. you need for your ratios per protein/carb/fat.
