2 15-ounce cans black beans rinsed and drained

2 green onions thinly sliced

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 4-ounce can diced green chiles

1 bell pepper(s) (any color or a variety) cored, seeded and cut into 1-inch strips

1 10-ounce can Rotel tomatoes with chilies drained

2 2.25-ounce cans sliced black olives

cooking spray

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 cup sour cream


Preheat oven to 450 degrees
Spray the inside of a Dutch oven with cooking spray. Spread the beans in an even layer in the pot.
Arrange the green onions on top of the beans, then add the chicken. Spread the chiles on the chicken. Add the pepper(s), tomatoes and olives in layers.
Cover and bake for 45 minutes. Carefully remove pot (it will be hot) from the oven. Sprinkle the chicken with shredded cheese. Serve chicken with a dollop of sour cream. Top with jalapeno if you have it on hand.

Jack Quesadillas


1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

4 large flour tortillas

1/2 cup prepared chunky salsa

cooking spray

1/2 4-ounce can diced green chiles


Place a large skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Place one flour tortilla on the bottom and sprinkle with some cheese, green chiles, and salsa. Top with another tortilla, cover and heat for 3-4 minutes or until golden. Flip to other side to brown lightly if desired.
Follow the same procedure with the other quesadilla(s), omitting chilies and salsa in children's portions, if desired. Cut into wedges to serve.
