Directions

  1. Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until the oil is very hot, and cook and stir the green and red bell pepper until they are starting to become tender, about 5 minutes. Set the peppers aside.
  2. Mix flour and taco seasoning in a bowl, and stir in chicken pieces, a few at a time, to thoroughly coat with the flour mixture. Heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and cook and stir the chicken until no longer pink and the coating is browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the bell peppers, black beans, and salsa, and let the mixture simmer for about 5 minutes to blend the flavors.
  3. To serve, sprinkle each portion with Cheddar cheese.

My family loved this recipe. Only changes I made include the following: instead of a green bell pepper I used a yellow bell pepper, also my son put his in a flour tortilla wrap - then everyone else did the same. It was great either way. Thanks for a great recipe!

Good flavor, moderate calorie count, easy to make.

This was quite good, but we thought it could use a little more flavour. I made as written other than using my own taco seasoning (way less sodium that way). Next time I will add an onion with the peppers and add some taco seasoning to that as well. I would also let it simmer for more than 5 minutes to let the flavours blend more.

Very tasty!! I did add some cooked rice at the end and a little corn. Great with tortillas or by itself.

Excellent and super easy. I just sauted everything together and it was done in just a few minutes. Served in whole wheat tortillas. thank you for sharing.

I was looking for a recipe to use some bell peppers in and came across this. It was very easy and was a big hit with the family. It was a little dry so I added more salsa and let it simmer down. Also, didn't quite have enough chicken so I added some steamed corn. Served this with some steamed rice, refried beans and tortillas. I'm sure the family will have me make this one again.

I made exactly as listed; used my own taco seasoning mix and homemade salsa. This was a huge hit in my house, even my 2 year old loved it. Very little leftover. This is definitely going on weekly rotation.

Simple to make. Instead of using regular salsa, I used Mango salso; it turned out to be great. Additionally, I cut down on the sodium content by using taco seasoning mix that was 40% less sodium.
