Cooking time

25 minutes




570 /serving

Add some Southwestern flair to BBQ night with the help of sweet, crunchy corn, hearty black beans and sautéed kale, all spruced up with fresh lime and lots of cilantro. Tossed in the skillet, the black beans take on plenty of smoky spice and an almost refried quality, which complements the juicy and slightly charred grilled chicken. Serve with crispy homemade tortilla strips and a good dousing of bright and garlicky lime zest aioli to keep the fiesta going. It all comes together in an easy 25 minutes.

Grill the chicken
Heat your BBQ on medium-high, making sure to oil it first (or heat a drizzle of oil in a large grill pan on medium-high). Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with ⅔ of the spice blend and S&P. Add the chicken* to the BBQ (or to your pan) and cook (partially covered if using a pan), 7 to 10 minutes per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board. Once cool enough to handle, thinly slice the chicken against the grain.

Mise en place
While the chicken cooks, drain and rinse the beans. Zest and juice the lime. Shuck the corn; using a sharp knife, slice the corn kernels off the cob. Remove and discard the kale stems; roughly chop the leaves. Halve the tortillas; cut into 1-inch-thick strips. Peel, halve and mince the shallot. Mince the garlic. Roughly chop the cilantro leaves and stems.

Toast the tortilla strips
While the chicken continues to cook, in a large pan, heat a generous drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the tortilla strips to the pan and toast, 2 to 3 minutes, until crispy. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and immediately season with S&P.

Cook the succotash
In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the corn, kale and shallots; cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, until beginning to brown. Add the beans and ¾ of the garlic; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until heated through. Stir in the cilantro and ½ the lime juice.

Make the lime aioli
While the succotash cooks, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, remaining garlic, remaining lime juice and as much of the lime zest as you’d like; season with S&P to taste.

Plate your dish
Divide the finished succotash between your plates; top with the sliced chicken. Garnish the chicken with a spoonful of the lime aioli. Serve the tortilla strips and the remaining aioli on the side. Bon appétit!
