the great Southwest and made with plump, tender Goya Black Beans, brightly
colored vegetables and a tangy Tex-Mex dressing.
1 lb. boneless chicken breasts
Water to cover
1 packet Goya Cubitos-Powdered Chicken Bouillon
1 packet Goya Sazón with Coriander and Annatto
1 can (15.5 oz.) Goya Black Beans, drained and rinsed
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 cup red peppers, diced
1/2 cup green peppers, diced
1 tbsp. chopped, fresh cilantro or parsley

1 tsp. Dijon-style mustard
1/2 tsp. Goya Cumin
1 tsp. Goya Chili Powder
1/2 tsp. Goya Adobo All-Purpose Seasoning with Pepper

In a saucepan, combine chicken and water to cover. Bring to a boil, stir in
cubitos and sazón, lower heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from heat.
