This is a simple and very tasty pantry meal made free of the top 8 allergens!

You’ll Need:

  • Cooked Rice, 2 Cups
  • 1 Medium Onion, Diced
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 2 Tablespoons Dairy Free Margarine, divided

  • 1 Can Pinto Beans

To Make:

  1. Get your rice started.
  2. Saute the onion and garlic in 1 tablespoon of dairy free margarine in a large skillet over medium high heat until the onion is translucent.
  3. Add the last tablespoon of margarine along with the chicken and spices to the skillet.
  4. Cook until the chicken is done, stirring frequently, about 12 minutes.
  5. Add the tomatoes and beans to the skillet and stir well.
  6. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat to medium and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.
  7. Serve over rice and enjoy!

Thank you! My husband LOVES King Ranch Chicken (which is similar to this) but I haven’t found a recipe that I was willing to try and then ruin it for him. I think I will try this one.
