Where's the Beans?


In my Betty Crocker's Best Chicken Cookbook (Super Express... 30 Minutes or Less Chapter), I seem to be missing something. The recipe title is, "Easy Mexican Chicken and "Beans".

The list of ingredients doesn't list any beans. The instructions and picture both use beans. What kind of beans and how much?



Hi Barbara,

Sorry about that. Here is the complete recipe from Betty Crocker.

Happy Cook'n,

Desi @ DVO

Easy Mexican Chicken and Beans
Makes: 4 servings

1 lb chicken breast strips for stir-fry
1 package (1.25 oz) Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix
1 can (15 oz) Progresso® black beans, drained, rinsed
1 can (11 oz) Green Giant® Mexicorn® whole kernel corn with red and green peppers, undrained
1/4 cup water
Tortillas, if desired

1. Spray 10-inch skillet with cooking spray. Add chicken to skillet; cook over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink in center.

Health Twist

Boost your fiber with beans. Filled with many other important nutrients, beans are an excellent source of fiber that's so important for good blood glucose management and to keep your digestive tract moving.


Stir-fry chicken strips not available? Buy the same weight of boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs, and cut up the meat yourself.


If you'd prefer, pinto beans can be substituted for the black beans.
