Spanish chorizo, boneless chicken, black beans and Jasmine rice combine with zesty lime and cilantro in this deliciously easy one pot meal.
Cinco de Mayo is coming up on May 5th and as I was looking back at some of my older recipes I found this recipe for Chorizo, Chicken & Black Beans with Rice buried in with a roundup post from two years ago and I thought it deserved the chance to shine on it’s own.
It’s incredibly delicious and SO easy to make. I also love how it’s a one-pot, all-in-one kind of meal. It just makes preparing dinner that much easier don’t you think? Chorizo, chicken, black beans, rice, fresh lime and cilantro make this dish incredibly festive for your Cinco de Mayo celebration, or any time of year for that matter. ~Enjoy!
