Santa Fe Chicken

Thinking of warmer weather, sandals and summer clothing? I know I sure am!

This southern Tex-Mex recipe is absolutely delicious, with all the southern flavors you would expect with a name like Santa Fe. You might want to add, to your

shopping list, the ingredients to make yourself a few Margaritas while cooking up this amazing, quick, and gluten free recipe.

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 30minutes


  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast

  • 2 Tbsp. taco seasoning

  • 2 tsp. cayenne pepper

  • kosher salt

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 small red onion, chopped

  • 2 red bell peppers, chopped

  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 2 cups shredded cheese

  • freshly chopped cilantro, for serving


1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Season chicken with taco

seasoning, cayenne pepper, and salt. Add chicken and cook until golden and

cooked through, 8 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

2. Add garlic, onion and peppers to skillet and cook until soft, about 5 minutes.

Stir in black beans until warmed through, then transfer mixture to a plate.

3. Reduce heat to low and return chicken to skillet. Top with cheddar and black

bean mixture, then cover and let the cheese melt.

4. Garnish with cilantro before serving.

Doreen's Tip - When I cook up this delightful recipe, I usually keep the chicken

in the skillet and add the spices right into the skillet. I will leave it up to you

and how you wish to prepare this southern style meal.

This another great recipe to bring over to a loved one or dear friend, not only comforting but also nutritious!
