Spice Up Weeknights Southwestern Style

Chipotle Chicken and Beans

A unique combination of ingredients makes for a mouth-watering dinner-in-one in Jenny K.’s Chipotle Chicken and Beans.

From Dover, Ohio, Jenny sent the change-of-pace recipe that deliciously combines rice, chicken and beans with lime juice, cranberry sauce and a dash of cinnamon. The comforting taste is bound to become a new favorite with you and your gang.


  • Cut green beans
  • Corn bread


  • Look for canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce in the ethnic aisle of large supermarkets.
  • Use strips of turkey bacon to reduce the fat even further.
  • Preparing the dinner on the stovetop saves time, but Jenny suggests another option: She cooks the bacon before combining it with the other ingredients in her slow cooker. She then simmers everything for 6-7 hours or until the rice is tender and the chicken juices run clear.
