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.

  • 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.

  • To serve, sprinkle each portion with Cheddar cheese.

My family loved this recipe. Only changes I made include the following: instead of a green bell pepper I used a yellow bell pepper also my son put his in a flour tortilla wrap - then everyone else did the same. It was great either way. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

This was quite good but we thought it could use a little more flavour. I made as written other than using my own taco seasoning (way less sodium that way). Next time I will add an onion with the peppers and add some taco seasoning to that as well. I would also let it simmer for more than 5 minutes to let the flavours blend more. Read More

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 sodium. Read More

I was looking for a recipe to use some bell peppers in and came across this. It was very easy and was a big hit with the family. It was a little dry so I added more salsa and let it simmer down. Also didn't quite have enough chicken so I added some steamed corn. Served this with some steamed rice refried beans and tortillas. I'm sure the family will have me make this one again. Read More

I made exactly as listed; used my own taco seasoning mix and homemade salsa. This was a huge hit in my house even my 2 year old loved it. Very little leftover. This is definitely going on weekly rotation. Read More

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 part of my lunch the next day. Very good! Read More

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