Ingredients

1
lb uncooked chicken breast strips for stir-fry
1
package (1 oz) Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix
1

1
can (11 oz) whole kernel corn with red and green peppers, undrained
1/4

Expert Tips

Boost your fiber with beans. Filled with many other important nutrients, beans are an excellent source of fiber that's so important for good blood glucose management and to keep your digestive tract moving.

Stir-fry chicken strips not available? Buy the same weight of boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs, and cut up the meat yourself.

If you'd prefer, pinto beans can be substituted for the black beans.
