Ingredients

  • 1 box Dreamfields Rotini
  • 2 tablespoons avocado, olive or vegetable oil
  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts diced (about 1/2-inch)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 cup diced red bell pepper (about 1/4-inch)
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels
  • 1-1/2 cups cherry tomatoes quartered
  • 1 cup no-salt-added black beans drained and rinsed

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (1 lime)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions; set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat avocado oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add diced chicken, cumin, paprika, onion and bell pepper. Cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in corn, tomatoes and black beans. Cook an additional 3 to 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through, stirring frequently.
  3. Transfer chicken mixture to large bowl. Add barbecue sauce; mix well.
  4. In small bowl, for guacamole, scoop avocados out of shell and remove pits. Mash with fork. Add lime juice and salt; stir to combine.
