  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chiles (such as RO*TEL®)

  • ½ cup chopped red onion

  • ½ cup chopped red bell pepper

  • 1 (29 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels, or more to taste

  • 3 tablespoons water

  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 avocado, sliced


  1. Place chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Pound to 1/2-inch thickness using a mallet. Combine cumin and cayenne in a small bowl and rub over chicken.

  2. Heat oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Cook and stir chicken in the hot oil until browned and no longer pink in the center, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a cutting board.

  3. Return the skillet with its drippings to medium heat. Add diced tomatoes, onion, and bell pepper. Cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in beans, corn, and water until just heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

  4. Transfer tomato mixture to a serving bowl and toss with cilantro and red wine vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Slice chicken and arrange with avocado on top of beans.
