  • In a medium skillet with oil, lightly brown the ground chicken and break it up to a crumble. (About 7 minutes).
  • Add in onion and saute for another 3 minutes. Add in taco seasoning and canned tomatoes. Mix well.
  • Add in diced green chiles and black bean. Bring skillet down to a simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Cover with shredded cheese, and let cheese melt. Place a lid or foil over the skillet for this part. This will help make the cheese melt faster!! Serve with favorite toppings (optional).
