Easy Chicken Taco Skillet 

1 tsp canola oil

1 lb ground fat free chicken

1 can garlic & onion diced tomatoes

15 oz can of corn, drained

1 can pinto beans

4 oz can of diced green chilies

1 tsp chopped canned jalapeño (or fresh)

1 cup chopped frozen onions

½ tsp black pepper

½ tsp salt

1 tsp minced garlic from a jar (or 4 cloves fresh)

1 ½ - 2 tsp chili powder or ancho chile powder

1-1 ½ tsp cumin

¼ tsp paprika

1 tsp oregano

grated cheese

fat free plain yogurt or  sour cream

If you do not want to mess with all the spices (salt through oregano) you can use a pack of taco seasoning, but you will get a nice dose of MSG and preservatives.

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a skillet.  Brown chicken and onions, adding seasonings as liquid begins to cook off.  Add ¼ cup water,  tomatoes, corn, jalapeño, chilies and beans. Simmer until liquid thickens.  Serve with tortilla chips and garnish with sour cream or yogurt.
