Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare the noodles according to package directions.

  • Meanwhile, brown the chicken with the onion, green pepper, corn, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper in a large, deep nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat.

  • Add the salsa, black beans, and broth to the skillet. Bring to a boil; simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the cooked noodles until coated. Serve with shredded Cheddar cheese, green onions, sour cream and additional salsa to garnish individual bowls at the table.



Substitute extra lean ground beef for the chicken.

For a spicier dish, use hot salsa and add hot sauce or hot pepper flakes to taste.

Replace the chili powder and cumin with 4 teaspoon (20 mL) taco seasoning.
