I threw this meal together as I hadn’t got anything planned and only had about 10 minutes in the day to get something prepared- I had chicken in the fridge, I always have black beans in the cupboard as I use them all the time, and the rest of the ingredients were just in the cupboards. I picked up my chipotle chilli flakes in Sainsburys a couple of weeks ago (love their new packaging on the spice range!) and they were definitely the key here as they have such a unique and amazing taste (if you could get hold of fresh chipotles even better!). This was a real winner and so easy to do.
