    It gets better and better as you continue to stir during the saute step. Added black beans to the initial ingredients.

    This meal was great and easy! I added a bit of taco seasoning and black beans. I cooked it for an extra 5 minutes because the chicken didn’t seem fully cooked. I just threw the avocado cheese and tortilla chips all in the bowl at the end.
