I love the flavours of Mexican food. One of my dreams when I’m a millionaire is to do a food world tour to experience some of my favourite foods directly from the country, Mexico would be one of first stops!
This dish is not a true Mexican dish but is inspired some of my favourite flavours. This recipe serves 2 but I often double up for some great leftovers.
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1 red pepper, chopped
- 2 green chillies, sliced (vary the amount of chillies depending on your spice tolerance levels)
- 2 tsp ground cumin
- 2 chicken breasts, cut into strips
- 4tbsp chipotle paste
- 1 x 400g chopped tomatoes
- 1 x 400g tin black beans
- Rice to serve
This is a great recipe to make mid-week as it is very simple to prepare and you can leave it to simmer while you’re enjoying your evening. Start by cooking the onion, garlic, pepper and chillies in a little oil until softened.
Add the cumin and chicken and cook until the chicken starts to colour. Add the chipotle paste and cook for a minute then add the tomatoes.
simmer for 20 minutes, then add the black beans and simmer for another 20-3o minutes. Check the seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste and a little more chilli if you fancy some more heat.
Serve with rice and enjoy.
