Chicken Enchilada Skillet

Threw this together the other night, and it turned out way better than I had imagined!  I love that it uses simple ingredients that you already have laying around the house, and isn’t as “high carb” as some other enchilada recipes.  Also – with it being so hot in the summer, I try not to use the oven very much – which makes this recipe definitely summer friendly, because it’s all on the stove!  Win win!


Chicken Enchilada Skillet

  • Servings: 4
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes (about 1 inch in size or so)
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped/diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced (I used 2 tsp of minced garlic from the store)
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1 cup Green chile enchilada sauce (I used Frontera)
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed (you can swap in black beans but the hubs prefers pinto so that’s what I used)
  • 1 cup frozen corn/1 can corn
  • 4oz can diced green chiles, optional (this adds a kick – and we loved it!)
  • Cauliflower rice, cooked (I use the frozen kind and toss it in the microwave – could also use brown rice instead!)
  • ½ tablespoon of chili powder
  • ½ – 1 tsp cumin
  • Shredded cheddar cheese (optional, for topping)
  • Avocado slices (optional, for topping)
  • Hot sauce/salsa (optional, for topping)


  • Spray skillet with olive oil and turn stove/burner to medium heat. Add chicken, cook thoroughly until no longer pink in the center, about 6-8 minutes or so.
  • Remove chicken, set aside. Spray skillet again with olive oil spray.
  • Add onion, garlic, and bell pepper – stir intermittently to prevent sticking and cook until onions are fragrant (and/or a little translucent).
  • Add enchilada sauce, corn, green chiles, pinto beans, chili powder, and cumin, stir frequently. Allow to heat through thoroughly.
  • Add chicken back to skillet and mix well. Once heated through, turn off burner and remove skillet from heat.  Sprinkle cheddar cheese (if using) on top, cover skillet, and allow cheese to melt, approximately 2-3 minutes.
  • Serve over cooked brown rice or cauliflower rice, and top with the optional toppings above – enjoy!!

This simple recipe is quick and easy – I hope you like it as much as we did!

Zero Motivation…but got it done.

Hi, all!

I worked Saturday night, slept about 4 hours on Sunday before getting up and getting things done, and then went to bed early after the Superbowl. Needless to say, I was EXHAUSTED when my alarm went off this morning, and I definitely hit snooze more than I’d like to admit…

So I didn’t get my workout in this morning.  Spent the whole day feeling sluggish and tired, despite my morning shakeology.  Did I let that stop me?  Almost…I had NO motivation and thought about skipping my workout.  But you know what made me come home and hit play?  My CHALLENGE group.

Yes.  It’s true.  Challenge groups give you motivation and accountability that you would never have on your own.  I knew my challengers were expecting a post from me, especially since one of my biggest rules is to NEVER miss a Monday workout!  So, I came home, and hit play.

I’m SO glad I did!  Another Hammer & Chisel workout done, and I have felt strong, energized, and accomplished since then.

I host challenge groups monthly – so if you want to make healthy lifestyle changes, improve your fitness and nutrition, please contact me!  My challenge groups provide motivation, inspiration, accountability and guidance in a JUDGEMENT-FREE zone.
