Ingredients

  • 2-3 Florida Chicken Breasts (cooked and diced into bite-size chunks)

  • 2 ears fresh Florida sweet corn, cut off the cob

  • 2 Florida bell peppers (your favorite color), diced

  • 2 Florida tomatoes, diced small

  • 1 small onion, diced small

  • 1 jalapeño (remove seeds to lessen the heat), chopped

  • 1 poblano pepper, diced small

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 small can green chilis

  • 2 cans black beans, rinsed

  • 2 tablespoons chili powder

  • 1 tablespoon cumin

  • 1 tablespoon oregano

  • 6 cups low sodium chicken broth

  • 2 cups water

  • 1 lime, juiced

  • Hot sauce (your favorite)

  • 5 small corn tortillas, cut into long thin strips

  • Olive oil for cooking

  • Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

Directions

  • Pre-heat a large skillet; carefully add the oil. Sauté the onions, bell peppers, jalapeño, poblano, and corn until soft, about 8 minutes.
  • Add the minced garlic, tomatoes, and green chilis, and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Next, add rinsed black beans, chili powder cumin, and oregano. Stir all of the ingredients to combine.
  • Pour in the chicken broth and water; add the diced chicken and tortilla strips now. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes; finish with fresh lime juice. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  • Serve with fresh avocado, sour cream, and crushed tortilla chips, if desired.

Notes

  • Fresh Tip: The seeds in jalapeño contain capsaicin, which is the source of its heat. Scrape them all out for a milder flavor, or leave some (or all) of the seeds in to add an extra kick.
