Serves about 4-6

Prep time: 5 min.

Cook time: 30 min. 


2 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium red bell pepper, chopped (optional)
2 minced garlic cloves
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1⁄4 c water
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp dried oregano
1⁄4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 c fresh cilantro, chopped
2 can (15 oz.) black beans
1 can (28 oz.) can diced tomatoes, undrained

In dutch oven or other heavy-bottomed pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onions, garlic, and bell pepper (if using) and saute for 2 to 3 minutes.

Raise heat to medium high and add chicken cubes. Cook, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes, or until chicken has lost all of its pink color. Stir in water and spices, then add tomatoes. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.

Stir in beans and (4 oz.) Libby's® Whole Kernel Sweet Corn Vegetable Cup. Cook for another 5 minutes.

Serve warm and garnish with toppings (avocado, cheese, sour cream, cilantro, tortilla chips), as desired.
