Review: Chopped green chili peppers and black beans turn thisdinner into a
south-of-the-border fiesta! Serve with a tossed salad.
Cube the chicken. Sprinkle with the black pepper and salt (if using).

Coat a large no-stick frying pan with spray. Add the chicken and cook over
medium-high heat for 5 minutes, or until the pieces begin to brown.
Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
In the same pan, combine the oil, onions, garlic and 2 tablespoons of the
broth. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5 to 6 minutes, or until the onions
are soft.
Add the tomato sauce, beans and remaining broth to the pan. Stir to mix
well. Add the chili peppers, chili powder, cumin and reserved chicken.
Bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the chicken is tender
and the liquid has thickened.
Taste the sauce. If it's acidic, add the sugar. Serve with the rice.
