Ingredients

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thigh
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 sweet green pepper chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can tomato
  • 1/3 cup tomato paste
  • 1 can black bean drained and rinsed
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded light old Cheddar-style cheese
  • 2 avocados peeled, pitted and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3 cups salsa
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 2 green onions chopped

Method

Cut chicken into bite-size pieces. In large shallow Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken in batches. Remove to bowl.

Add onion, green pepper, garlic, cumin, oregano, salt and pepper to pan; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes.

Add tomatoes and tomato paste, breaking up tomatoes with spoon. Return chicken and any accumulated juices to pan; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until liquid is almost evaporated, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in beans, 2 cups (500 mL) of the cheese, avocados and lime juice.

Evenly spread 2 cups (500 mL) of the salsa in 13- x 9-inch (3 L) glass baking dish. Place 1 of the tortillas on work surface. Mound 1 cup (250 mL) of the chicken mixture along centre; roll tortilla over tightly to make tube. Place, seam-side down, in salsa in dish. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Top with remaining salsa; sprinkle with remaining cheese and green onions. Cover with foil. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 2 days; add 30 minutes to baking time.)

Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until hot and bubbly, 25 to 30 minutes.
