(This one skillet dish is deliciously different, hearty and healthy!)


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large (10-12 inch) cast iron or non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. In a small bowl combine all of the spices.
  3. When the skillet is hot add in the chicken and spread into an even layer, then sprinkle with half of the spice blend.
  4. Sauté the chicken for approximately 3 minutes then add in the onion.
  5. Continue to cook for several more minutes or until the onion has softened and the chicken is cooked through.
  6. Lower the heat to medium and add in the remaining spice blend, sweet potato, cherry tomatoes, black beans, green chiles and salsa or enchilada sauce.
  7. Stir together and cook until the mixture is heated through, approximately 2-3 minutes.
  8. Squeeze the lime juice over everything then top with the shredded cheese.
  9. Cover with a lid or lay a piece of foil on top of the skillet until the cheese has melted.
  10. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
