A weeknight single-skillet dinner that packs a huge amount of flavor and just the right smoky heat. My family is lactose-intolerant and we adhere to a low fodmap diet. The small amount of garlic in the adobo works for us, but your mileage may vary. You can tone down the heat by serving this dish with a side of yellow rice or kick it up by adding in cayenne. Adding in the optional chipotle chilies approximately doubles the heat of the recipe.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Mix together olive oil and garlic powder in a small bowl and drizzle into the hot skillet. Add diced chicken; cook and stir for 3 minutes. Add onion, cilantro, and adobo sauce, then immediately add oregano, sage, cumin, and paprika. Stir and cook for 5 minutes.

  • Add beans, mushrooms, asparagus, and bell pepper; stir. Add chicken stock; bring to a simmer and cook until liquid is mostly gone, 10 to 15 minutes. Add chipotle peppers, pour in half-and-half, and return to a simmer. Add cotija cheese and gently stir until cheese melts, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve immediately.

Cook's Note:

You can use garlic-flavored olive oil if you have it, instead of mixing olive oil and garlic powder. Queso fresco cheese can be used for cotija, and lactose-free half-and-half can be used for lactose sensitivity.
