This hearty appetizer with a zesty blend of flavors is wonderful for casual entertaining or a snack for the kids.
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 to 4 (1 pound) Gold'n Plump® Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 small jalapeno chilies, seeded and finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 can (15 ounces) diced tomatoes, drained
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup purchased salsa
1 bag (8 ounces) corn tortilla chips (about 8 cups)
1/2 cup (2 ounces) finely shredded Cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 450°F.
Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, jalapeños, cumin, oregano, and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally and breaking up larger pieces of chicken, for about 12 to 15 minutes, or until chicken is lightly browned and thoroughly cooked.
Stir in flour and chili powder; continue to cook for 1 minute.
Stir in tomatoes (without juice), vinegar, and sugar; cook, stirring frequently, for about 3 minutes.
Stir in beans and salsa; stir until evenly heated.
Arrange chips in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan (15”x10”x1”). Spoon chicken mixture evenly over chips. Sprinkle with cheese.
Bake for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
To avoid irritation from the oils in chilies, wear disposable plastic gloves when handling them. Do not touch your, eyes, nose, or lips. After chopping, wash your hands, knife, and cutting board in hot, soapy water.
Adjust the “heat” by simply substituting “mild” or “medium” salsa.
