1 tsp. grapeseed oil
2 cloves garlic (minced)
2 ribs celery (diced)
1 large onion (diced)
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 cup dark beer
1/4 tsp. salt
to taste fresh ground black pepper
2 Tbsp. tomato paste
1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
1/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 – 15 ounce can no salt added black beans
6 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breast (cubed)
2 ounces low-fat Monterey jack cheese (grated)
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Place the grapeseed oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, celery and onion and cook, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes until the onions begin to soften.
Add the cumin, cayenne, beer, salt, pepper, tomato paste, maple syrup vanilla extract and black beans. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes. Add the chicken and cook for another five minutes.
Divide the chicken and black bean mixture into two au gratin dishes. Top with the grated jack cheese and place the dishes in the oven.
Cook for about 3 – 5 minutes until the cheese is melted and beginning to brown on top.
I made mine in an iron skillet and put that straight into the oven after topping with cheese. I also used olive oil in the absence of grapeseed oil.
