"My husband calls it Mexican Chinese food. Chicken is stir fried with bell peppers, black beans, and salsa. It's delicious served with rice and topped with cheese."

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until the oil is very hot, and cook and stir the green and red bell pepper until they are starting to become tender, about 5 minutes. Set the peppers aside.
  2. Mix flour and taco seasoning in a bowl, and stir in chicken pieces, a few at a time, to thoroughly coat with the flour mixture. Heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and cook and stir the chicken until no longer pink and the coating is browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the bell peppers, black beans, and salsa, and let the mixture simmer for about 5 minutes to blend the flavors.
  3. To serve, sprinkle each portion with Cheddar cheese.

Simple to make. Instead of using regular salsa, I used Mango salso; it turned out to be great. Additionally, I cut down on the sodium content by using taco seasoning mix that was 40% less sodi...

This was a great recipe! I ended up using it for Mexican Egg Roll stuffing... yummy! I cut the salsa amount down a bit so it wouldn't be too runny. I used some of the extra cooked chicken as ...

What a great, fairly simple dish. I was out of rice, so I served it over linguini pasta and it was fantastic.
