One of them being that pantry staple type of recipes would still be helpful! As well as easy dinners to put together while kids are running wild... hahah totally get that! Right now it is so difficult to figure out where everyone is at during this horrendously confusing & difficult time.

So I have this amazing recipe I wanted to make sure I pushed forward before Memorial Weekend! Why?

What ingredients are in this easy dish?

Easy Zesty Pineapple Avocado Salsa
The BEST Baked Chicken Ever ( or put on grill!)
1 16oz can of Refried Pinto Beans with no oil added
2 large chicken breasts
1 Mild Taco Seasoning packet ( prefer Simply Organic)
1 - 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese ( love mix of Monterey Jack Cheddar cheese & Gouda)
1 jar of black bean corn salsa ( love the Roasted Corn, Black Bean, Cotjia Cheese salsa from Whole Foods)
1 4oz jar of hatch green chiles
Then any of the toppings you'd want! Like avocados, sour cream, tomatoes, black olives etc.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Grease an 8 X 8 baking dish .
Take the 2 large chicken breasts & cut into 1/4 inch pieces thick & about 2 inch in length. I lay the breast down & cut vertically along the short slide not long ways. Then place pieces into the bowl. Sprinkle 1/2 of the mild taco seasoning
Then pour the refried beans can into the dish & smooth flat with a spatula
Then sprinkle 1/2 cup of cheese over the refried beans. Then pour the hatch chiles ( not drained) over the cheese, smooth over with spatula again.
Next pour 1/2 cup salsa & smooth over. Pour the chicken on top & spread evenly over the top. Pour 1/2 cup more of the salsa on top, then sprinkle 1/2 cup more of cheese on top.
Place in oven at 375 degrees for 18 minutes. Take out & sprinkle the rest of the 1/2 cup of cheese on top. Then place back in oven for 10 more minutes, then turn on broil HIGH for 5 minutes ( check throughout those 5 minutes, pull out when starts to get a little brown on the top, perfect crispness!)
Then take out of oven, scoop into a bowl, top with all your yummy toppings, tortilla chips as well & dive in!!
