No matter how busy our days get, I am adamant about having a real, sit down, family dinner each night. No phones, no TV, no internet, no distractions: just quality family time. Since we are so busy, finding a filling, easy to prepare meal can be a challenge! I recently tried a Chicken Chili with Black Beans and Corn recipe that all three of us loved. (That’s rare in our family.)

Chicken Chili with Black Beans and Corn Recipe

Recently, I made Chicken Chili with Black Beans and Corn, which is one of‘s fresh takes on a family classic. The meal was a big hit that our whole family enjoyed. There were tasty layers of flavor to enjoy, without being too spicy. Plus, I felt good knowing that there were lots of veggies and nutrients in our meal. This would be the perfect meal for a chilly evening this fall and winter. Plus, you could easily make a double batch and freeze it for your next football party, which is what I am doing right now!

The McCormick website is one of my go-to sites when it comes to finding quick and healthy recipe ideas. A lot of the recipes are new takes on family classics, using their fantastic lines of spices, which I love. Not only do they have great recipe ideas on their website, they have a flavor wheel which shows you what flavors you’ll find in their recipes. I thought it was a great way to identify meals our family would most enjoy…because I have two VERY pick eaters – my husband and my son.

Ingredients: This recipe is a hearty blend of chicken breast, beans, frozen corn, green pepper and onions along with a nice mixture of McCormick spices including paprika, oregano leaves, ground cumin, garlic powder and crushed red pepper.
