Spicy Ground Chicken

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Cathy17

I made up this recipe in my diet days when I tried to eat healthy. It is quick, tasty and low fat. You can either serve on top of rice or wrap in a soft tortilla for a great low fat and filling meal.

Just made this tonight. It was excellent. Used ground chicken. I added some black beans, cumin & cilantro. Quick & Great! Would eat with tortilla or with rice.
