For a yummy dinner recipe, you seriously can’t beat the flavoursome taste of chipotle. This classic dish is made with chicken, but you can also make a vegetarian, vegan and red meat alternative if your dietary requirements allow for it. Finish with a delicious side-salad to get your daily dose of greens.
1 tbsp vegetable oil
3/4 cup fresh salsa
1 chipotle chile
1 can beans (drained and rinsed)
1.5 cups shredded chicken
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/3 cup cooked white rice
1/3 cup shredded cheese
1/3 cup shredded romaine lettuce
Guacamole (for serving)
- Heat the vegetable oil in a pot over medium heat, then slowly add the fresh salsa, chopped chipotle and sauce to taste.
- Cook until the mixture starts to sizzle, which should take about 2 minutes. Then add the beans and 3/4 cup of water and bring to a slow boil.
- Stir in the chicken strips, and cook until the mixture is slightly thickened before adding the cilantro. Now is also a great time to season with salt.
- Heat the tortillas, then pop the rice into the lower half leaving a small border on all sides. Top off with cheese, chicken, lettuce and fresh salsa. Then fold the tortilla and serve! You can also serve this dish in a bowl, which is also tasty and very presentable.
