1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, plus additional for garnish
1 1/2 tbsp fresh lime juice plus additional lime wedges for garnish, optional
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 cups cooked brown rice
1/2 cup sour cream, optional
Mist a 3- to 3½-qt slow cooker with cooking spray. Add tomatoes, bell peppers, onion, squash, garlic and 1/4 cup water; stir gently. Arrange chicken on top and mist with cooking spray.
In a small bowl, combine chile powder, cumin and oregano. Sprinkle evenly over top of contents of slow cooker. Cover and cook until chicken is no longer pink in center, 3 hours on high or 6 hours on low.
Turn off slow cooker. Remove chicken and transfer to a cutting board. Stir cilantro, lime juice, oil and salt into tomato-pepper mixture. Pull chicken apart into large pieces, or shred coarsely with 2 forks. Return chicken to slow cooker, gently stir and let mixture sit, uncovered, for 15 minutes, until thickened slightly. Divide rice among shallow soup bowls and spoon tomato-chicken mixture over top, dividing evenly. If desired, top with additional cilantro. If using, serve with sour cream and lime wedges.
Serving Size: 1 1/4 cups tomato-chicken mixture and 1/2 cup rice
A traditional Indian dish, Biryani is typically made with basmati rice and layered with spiced chicken before baking. In this recipe, we’ve swapped the rice for Kamut for added texture, and skipped the layering step to save time – all while keeping its classic, aromatic flavorings. We suggest getting a head start on cooking the Kamut in Step One before chopping or measuring your other ingredients. To reduce cooking time, you can also soak Kamut overnight in water.
Cooking with chiles is a skill that Mexican cooks have honed into an art form over centuries. This bowl with soul contains beans and corn, two staples of south-of-the-border recipes, but also keeps things light and fresh with cubed avocado and thinly sliced radishes.
Warm corn tortillas envelop tender shreds of nutty chicken in this unexpected slow-cooker creation. A tangy fresh mint and cucumber topping brings the Thai-Mexican mingling together for an exotic, spicy meal.
