1.5 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast, turkey cutlet or steak, diced
2 tablespoons olive oil
5 cloves garlic, crushed
1 red pepper, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 large onion, diced
1 jalapeno, chopped
1 large and 1 small can crushed tomatoes
2 cans black beans
1 bag frozen corn
4 tablespoons chili powder
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
salt, pepper and hot sauce to taste
1) Brown meat in olive oil.
2) Add all veggies (with a splash more oil if needed) and cook until onions are just clear.
4) Add the beans (with liquid if the chili is looking too thick for your liking), corn, and cilantro. Add the spices and season to taste.
I must add that this is how I started my day today:
Amazing Grass. What you see here is the Chocolate Green SuperFood blended quickly with about 6 oz. of vanilla soy milk and a couple of ice cubes. I drank it at 6:30am while getting us all ready to leave for the day (while Baby J enjoyed some toast). Keep in mind that I had been up from 4:30-5:30, have a bit of a cold and sore throat, and have some other physical things going on that combined to make me feel horrid upon rising today. I put back this shockingly tasty beverage, and really felt instantly energized and well. I didn't touch my coffee until I was almost an hour down the highway at around 8:30 (shocking), and was full until lunch at noon. I am officially hooked.
