I am a big fan of food and cooking and laziness. So, if I can find a recipe that ticks all three of those boxes, count me in. This is a little meal I whipped up today. It's healthy. It's fast. It's darn delicious. And I want to share it with you.
- a thingy of ground chicken (or turkey, if you must). How much? Let's say "a pound."
- canola oil
- 6 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon of cumin
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of coriander
- some cayenne pepper to taste (I use about a 1/4 teaspoon)
- 1 cup of green salsa. Whatever kind of green salsa you like.
- 2 (15 oz.) cans of cannellini beans (drained and rinsed)
- 4 cups of low-sodium chicken broth
- 1/4 cup of minced cilantro
- 3 tablespoons of lime juice (or just go ahead and squeeze two limes all up in there)
- Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat until shimmering like a Vegas showgirl's headdress. Brown the chicken, about 10 minutes or so.
- Reduce the heat to medium and add the garlic, cumin, coriander, and cayenne. Cook for about 30 seconds.
- Add the salsa, cannellini beans, and chicken broth. Bring the pot to a simmer. (I like to go ahead and crank the heat up as high as it will go, because I'm lazy like that)
- Cover, reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook for 25 minutes.
- Remove from heat and add the cilantro and lime juice.
- Serve by itself or with cheese or sour cream or tortilla chips or whatever tickles your fancy.
