  • 2 cups cooked pinto beans
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp ground cayenne red pepper

  • 1/4 cups cilantro (chopped)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice (warmed)

  • Cook rice and shred chicken.
  • Add oil to a sauté pan over medium heat. Add half the diced onion and the pinto beans, chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, black pepper and water. Sauté, slightly mashing the beans as you sauté until the liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes.
