Ingredients

  • 2 cups rotisserie chicken shredded
  • 1 8 oz. jar mild picante sauce
  • 1 15 oz. canned black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 15.25 oz. canned corn drained - no canned corn? Substitute 2 cups frozen corn
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1 red bell pepper seeded and chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper seeded and chopped
  • 1 yellow onion peeled and diced
  • 1/2 jalapeño seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 chipotle pepper minced
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • optional toppings - shredded cheese, tortilla chips, cilantro, sliced jalapeños and sour cream

Instructions

  • Dice the peppers and onions.
  • Add the oil to a large pot over medium heat on the stovetop. Add the diced peppers and onion. Saute for 8-10 minutes.
  • Add the minced chipotle pepper, black beans, corn chicken broth and Picante sauce. Increase heat to high, bring to a boil. Reduce to medium and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  • Add the chicken meat and heat thru. This will only take a couple of minutes.
  • Garnish with shredded cheese, chips, lime wedges, sour cream, etc., or no condiments at all!

Notes

  • Removing the seeds & membrane from the jalapeño will remove the majority of the heat. However you can always omit them.
