A note about serious food allergies

This meal has many amazing, tasty moving parts: succulent chicken, feisty pepper, hearty beans, the slight heat and flavor bounty of chipotle crema, fresh lime (and cilantro lime salt!), and delicious rice. With so much going on, it's amazing it gets distilled into one perfect meal. But amazement is our middle name. (Not Shirley like it says on the old birth certificate.)

Pat chicken dry, and season all over with¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.
