Mexican Gold Fiesta
Alrighty folks, here is my ULTIMATE, mouth-watering, packed with an abundance of flavor that will dance in your mouth/belly. My secret recipe. Everyone I have ever made this for has come back for 3rds and 4ths because it simply is that yummy. Bit of caution on the spicy side. It is also smoky. Get ready to make this one a lot.
What you will need:
°1 large skillet
° 1lb chicken breast or chicken tenderloin (you may substitute beef)
°1 can black beans drained
°1 can la morena adobo chipotle peppers (secret ingredient) 210g jar
°2 tablespoons olive oil
°1/4 cup white wine
°1/4 teaspoon salt
°1/4 teaspoon black pepper
°1/4 cup chopped cilantro
°4 cloves crushed garlic
°1 chopped sweet pepper
°1 chopped onion (purple preferably, but can use any you want
°1 bag frozen mixed veggies, preferably with corn, lima beans, green beans, and carrot blend (can use mexican blend as well)
°1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (can use monterey or mexican blend) optional
°sour cream optional
°6 teaspoons adobo seasoning
°4 tablespoons goya recaito cilantro cooking base
Let’s get started…
In skillet cook: add olive oil and white wine, chicken. On medium heat
Season chicken with 2 teaspoons adobo seasoning and 1/2 of the cilantro. Let cook to almost brown.
Take out 1 breast at a time and cut into “bite sized pieces”
I find it easiest to cut cooked chicken than raw.
Throw the chicken back into the skillet let cook till slightly golden brown…
Then the magic begins….
Add garlic, onion, pepper, mixed veggies, la morena chipotle (do not drain), black beans, the rest of the cilantro, and rest of adobo seasoning.
Believe it or not will have a lot of heat, but if you dare add a tablespoon of crushed red pepper and that’s if you dare..
Now let this bad boy cook uncovered for about 25-30 on medium heat stirring occasionally.
You can eat this plain.. however, i like to eat it over some dirty rice (zatarains) makes a great black bean one, but high in sodium..
Or as a fajita.. sprinkle a little cheese on top and sour cream (which adds to the awesomeness) a little hot sauce or louisiana sauce and I just died and have gone to heaven.
Prepare for others to have 2nds and 3rds. This is a magic mixture of flavor that dances the “happy dance” in your belly!
I have now given up my secret recipe for the entire world. Enjoy it as many of my friends crave it.
