  • 2 chicken breast filets (cooked and shredded)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ purple or red onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • ½ red pepper, finely diced
  • 1 cup black beans
  • ½ cup frozen corn
  • 16 ounces salsa or enchilada sauce, (optional 1 batch SkinnyMs. Enchilada Sauce)
  • ¾ cup cornmeal
  • 2/3 cup white whole wheat
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ cups (reduced-fat) sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup cilantro or chopped scallions (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a cast-iron skillet, cook chicken breast until fully cooked. Shred chicken and return to skillet. Cook with 1 tablespoon olive oil, onion, garlic and red pepper until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 2 minutes.

Add black beans, corn, and salsa or enchilada sauce to the skillet. Turn off stove and remove skillet.

In a medium bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons olive oil, cornmeal, white wheat flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, salt, and egg. The mixture should resemble a crumb-like streusel. Sprinkle this mixture over the top of your skillet. Top with cheddar cheese.

Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or just until the cheese is bubbly and barely golden. Garnish with cilantro or scallions. Enjoy!
