Equipment

  • Griddle

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 lb ground chicken breast
  • 1/2 small onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup + 1/8 cup water
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp Chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 heads romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 2 medium roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded low-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 14 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained

Dressing

  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin

Instructions

  • Heat a medium skillet to a medium heat. Add 2 tsp olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add ground chicken. Use a wooden spoon to bread the meat up. After 1 or 2 minutes, add onion, stir to combine. Sauté until chicken is golden brown and cooked through, and onion is soft, about 6-7 minutes.
