This recipe can be eaten as a side dish, over rice, or as burrito filling. Trying to incorporate more fiber into my diet my husband came up with it. I adjusted some of the seasonings to my taste and the result has become a favorite in our house. As with all recipes, feel free to adjust seasonings to your taste. I think it tastes better the next day, but it doesn't last that long normally. By leaving out the chicken it would also be vegetarian.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add canned chicken, diced tomatoes with chilies, red kidney beans and jalapeno slices to pot.
  2. Add dry seasonings and hot sauce. Mix well.
  3. Bring to boil then reduce heat to medium/low, cover and simmer for ca. 10 minutes. (There should be enough liquid left from the canned tomatoes so it won't burn.).
  4. Remove cover and simmer for ca. 5 more minutes or until most of the liquid is evaporated.
