Tex-Mex Chicken

Hi friends,
Since discovering Trader Joe's new "fire roasted - onions, bellpeppers" I've found so many uses for them.  One day I had some already cooked chicken and put this together in 10 minutes:
                                                                                                  Quick Tex-Mex Chicken and Vegetables

1 pkg frozen fire roasted onions, bell peppers (Trader Joe's)
1/2 cup frozen roasted corn (TJ's)
1 cup chopped cooked chicken
1/2 bottle TJ's enchilada sauce
Put the onions & bell peppers in a hot skillet with 1 Tbsp coconut oil, stir and cook for a few min, then add the corn and cook for another 3-4 min.  Add the cooked cubed chicken, 1/2 bottle sauce, stir to heat, eat!  (Serves 2 - easy to double or triple!)
Serve with a side dish of organic broccoli and quinnoa cooked in chicken broth and tossed with 1/4 cup chopped sundried packed in olive oil tomatoes and a handful of crumbled goat cheese.
Nutrition tips:
I truly wish this frozen pkg was available in "organic" variety b/c bell peppers, along with berries and celery,  are the most pesticided of all foods.  So, to help out the liver out a bit, I usually add one whole chopped organic onion to the saute stage of the veggies and about 6-8 cloves crushed or chopped garlic (add garlic right at the last bit of cooking for the corn to keep it potent).  And organic broccoli and garlic are the grand-daddies of all vegetables that can detox pesticides from the liver..   we all should eat some cruciferous veggies every single day. (garlic, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, brussel sprouts, cabbage, bok choy)
Bon appetite!!
