The weather has been getting warm; the flowers are in bloom; and, for me, this brings to mind one thing: BBQ!
I love that hickory-smoked tangy delicious tantalizing flavor on anything within reason.
I came up with this recipe on a day when I wanted to make a quick meal for the family that was both healthy and delicious.
This recipe uses only five ingredients, takes about 20 minutes and has just the right tang to spice up your day.
I buy 10″ tortillas and heat them in an ungreased skillet on med-high for about 10-15 seconds per side.
You can either roast your chicken beforehand or go the quick route and buy a rotisserie chicken.
Grab your black beans, cooked corn and KC Masterpiece Original. They go in a pan with the shredded roast chicken.
In summer, we have wonderful fresh corn in New England so I like to use fresh cooked whenever I have it since it’s so easy to just skim off the cob with a knife.
My recipe for 4 follows. Hope you enjoy it!
- 1 roasted chicken - about 4 cups shredded
- 1/2 cup KC Masterpiece Original Barbecue Sauce
- 1/2 cup frozen corn that you've steamed or fresh cooked corn niblets skimmed off the cob
- 1 cup canned black beans, rinsed
- 4 10" tortillas
- Take your chicken and shred it. I don't like to shred it too small. Place in a bowl.
- Place your skillet on medium - medium high and add the chicken, barbecue sauce, corn, and black beans. Stir well as you cook for about 5 minutes.
- Warm your tortillas and place them on a plate. Spoon 1/4 of the mixture into each and roll up.
- Serve whole or cut in half.
- Garnish as desired.
For garnishes I use whatever I have handy. I like to add a dollop of sour cream. You can use reduced-fat or Greek yogurt if you like! I like to garnish with fresh lime wedges avocado and cilantro. I also add salsa and guacamole if I have them!
Don’t get too stressed out though! Summer is for good times not sweating over a hot stove!
This recipe is so easy because it features KC Masterpiece which is my all-time favorite. For me, it has just the right balance of heartiness, flavor and spice and takes a simple dish from ordinary to extraordinary.
