Fiesta Chowder - serves 4-6

3 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 package fajita seasoning, divided into tablespoons
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 can mexicorn, drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can mexican style stewed tomatoes (I use a can of Rotel)
1 small can chopped green chiles (drain off half the juice to reduce hotness)
3 cups water
1 cup uncooked instant brown rice
1 can condensed nacho cheese soup
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon lime juice (I usually omit this, cuz I'm too lazy to buy a lime)

Combine flour and 2 tablespoons fajita seasoning in a ziploc bag; add chicken. Seal and shake to coat.
Cook chicken in hot oil in a large Dutch oven over high heat, stirring often, until browned. Reduce heat to medium high; add onion and garlic; saute 5 minutes. Stir in remaining fajita seasoning, corn, next 5 ingredients, and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 minutes, or until heated throughout. Stir in nacho cheese soup, cilantro, and lime juice. Turn off heat and let sit for 3-5 minutes.

I usually serve with cornbread or breadsticks. SO GOOD. My DH cannot get enough of this meal! Enjoy!
