Today’s post is a super easy healthy meal that I make when i’m running short on time. It’s a mexican inspired and filled with fiber, protein, colorful veggies and healthy fats.

When i’m in a hurry I pick up a rotisserie chicken, shred it and set aside. You can also grill your chicken at home and then shred it as well but the precooked rotisserie chicken saves me time. Next I satuee one red bell pepper and a large onion in a frying pan with a little olive oil and set them aside.
I toss my shredded chicken back into the frying pan and add a little sea salt, cumin and a can of cannellini beans. I drain a bit of the liquid out of the can first but not all of it. I mix it all together in the frying pan and add a little bit of chicken broth just to give it a creamy kind of texture (think tuna salad consistency). Add your sautéed peppers and onions back in to the frying pan.
Put a 1/2 cup of brown rice on your dinner plate and add your chicken mixture on top.
Next top it with with some sweet white corn cut straight from the cobb! You can used the canned kind but I think it tastes much better coming right off the cobb.
Lastly add a healthy spoonful of guacamole and you’re done! I purchased (and am obsessed with) the pre-made guacamole from Whole Foods. I used to make my own (Avocados, onion, cilantro, lime juice and a little sea salt) but this saves so much time and is really good! This dish has so much flavor coming from the veggies and guacamole that I promise you won’t miss the cheese, sour cream and tortilla chips that are usually in mexican food.
This meal is definitely a hit in our house and hope you ladies enjoy it too!
