  1. Combine cumin, salt, dried chipotle pepper, and paprika in a large, resealable plastic bag. Seal bag and shake to mix. Measure 2 teaspoons of the seasoning into a large bowl; add diced tomatoes with green chile peppers, black beans, and corn to the bowl and stir.
  2. Put chicken in the bag with the remaining seasoning; shake to coat.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Turn seasoned chicken out into the skillet, add red onion, and saute in the hot oil until the chicken is browned, about 5 minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-high. Stir tomato mixture with the chicken; bring to a boil, add rice, and stir.
  5. Reduce heat to low. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese over the chicken mixture. Place a cover on the skillet and simmer until the rice is tender and the chicken no longer pink in the middle, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat to cool for 5 minutes before serving.

This was tasty and filling and pretty healthy, too! I used all the ingredients (scaled them down a bit for our tastes) with one exception--the rice I had was basmati, so I cooked it beforehand. I ran out of liquid in the pan to finish the cooking process, so I added a little bloody mary mix that I happened to have leftover from New Year's Day, and that made the final touch to this. My leftovers will be snatched from us by visiting family members! Thanks, Martha C., for our dinner!
