I love homemade black beans, when I cook some up I make sure to make as large a pot as possible for leftovers. The chicken tacos were using another Grill Mates packet and were very tasty.
- 1 lb dried beans
- 1 jalapeno, chopped
- 3 tbsp chopped garlic
- 2 tbsp garlic salt
- 1 tbsp cayenne sauce (or less if you want less heat)
- 2lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- Flour tortillas
- Queso Fresco
- 1 Packet McCormicks Grill Mates Mexican Fiesta
- 3 tbsp oil
- 2 tbsp water
- 2 tbsp vinegar
Place black beans in a large bowl, cover with water and let soak overnight. Combine chicken, Grill Mate, Oil, Water and vinegar in a container making sure to coat the chicken and refrigerate overnight.
Drain beans. Add to a deep pot with jalapeno, garlic and 1 tbsp garlic salt. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until beans are soft. This takes about two hours. Taste and add additional garlic salt and cayenne sauce as needed.
Grill the chicken over a medium-low flame for 15-20 minutes until no longer pink. Chop and serve with taco shells, black beans, Queso Freso and and other desired toppings.
