Ancho chili powder has a kick, so for sensitive palates, substitute chili powder, which is much milder. Serve with a dollop of sour cream to cool things off.

Ingredients

  • 3 small flour tortillas halved and cut crosswise in 1/2 inch wide strips
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 450 g boneless skinless chicken breasts cut in 3/4-inch cubes
  • 1 sweet pepper chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon ancho chili powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup canned black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels

Honey Lime Salad:
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons liquid honey

Method

Toss tortilla strips with 1 tsp of the oil. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; cook strips, tossing often, until golden, about 2 minutes. Transfer to bowl.

Add remaining oil to skillet; cook chicken, sweet pepper, garlic, chili powder, pepper and salt, stirring often, until chicken is no longer pink inside, about 4 minutes.
