1/2c. of black beans
1 portion of Perdue Shortcuts Chicken, diced
1tsp. of canola oil
Salt/Pepper to taste
1. Heat the oil in a small pot
2. Add the onions, cumin and salt. Sautee until the onions become translucent
3. Add the beans, garlic, vegetable stock, lime juice and cilantro. Cook on medium heat for 5 minutes
4. Add the chicken and pepper
