    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.

    Sauteed onions in 2 Tbs butter first with some salt and pepper. Removed the onions & blended briefly so they weren’t chunky.
    Used chicken breasts-thawed them using saute function, sliced thinly, added butter and fried them so they were light golden on the outside but still not fully cooked.
    Chopped them up and returned them to the pot and added the rest of the ingredients. Used 1.5 Tbs of chili powder instead of chili peppers. Added another 1/2 cup of broth and 2 cups of frozen corn. Cook.
