  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp chile powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 large orange bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cups diced tomato
  • 2 cups frozen corn, thawed
  • 2 Avocados, sliced or diced
  • ½ cup green onions, sliced
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • cilantro for garnish
  • plain Greek yogurt or Sour Cream for garnish


  • Slice chicken breasts in half length wise to give you six thin breasts, this will cook much easier.
  • Combine chile powder, garlic powder and cumin together. Rub on the chicken breasts.
  • Heat oil in pan over medium high heat. Cook chicken breasts about 4-5 minutes on each side or until cooked through.  
  • Cut chicken into bite size pieces, set aside.
  • Warm black beans on the stove top.  
  • Divide the rice, beans, chicken and remaining ingredients into 6 bowls. Top with plain Greek yogurt or sour cream, cheese and cilantro


For a shortcut, purchase a rotisserie chicken from your local store, pull the meat off and season it with the spices.
A side of chips, salsa and guacamole go great with this.  
To make this Trim Healthy Mama Compliant:
  • Leave off cheese and avocado to keep it in E mode
  • Use nonfat plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream
