Spicy Mexican-Style Grains & Pulses


Serve with

  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander
  • Tomato salsa, sour cream, chopped avocados


1. Heat 1tbsp vegetable oil in a large frying pan, before sautéing the peppers in the oil for 5 minutes. Once the peppers are suitably soft, add the remaining ingredients (apart from the grains) and cook over a medium heat for 10-12 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper.

2. While the chicken mixture is cooking, heat the Mexican grains (follow the instructions on the pack). Make sure they’re hot through.

3. Once hot, pop the grains into a bowl and top with the chicken – then sprinkle with chopped coriander. This dish also goes brilliantly with a side of tomato salsa, sour cream and chopped avocados!
