Fiesta Chicken Dinner

I made this last night but used ground turkey instead. It tasted pretty good. I didn't have the green onions or sour cream but it was still good.

1 lb. Lean ground chicken
1 tbsp. Oil
1 pkg (14 oz.) Macaroni & Cheese Dinner
2-1/2 cups Hot water
1 jar (16 oz.) Salsa
1 tsp. Ground cumin
1 can (19 oz.) drained and rinsed beans (black or pinto)
2 Chopped green onions
1/2 cup Sour Cream

1.Cook chicken in oil in large non-stick skillet 5-7 minutes or until cooked through. Add pasta (reserving cheese pouch), water, salsa, and cumin to skillet; bring to a boil.
2. Reduce heat; cover, and simmer 10 minutes. Stir beans and cheese pouch into skillet; heat thouroughly. Top with green onions. Serve with sour cream on the side, if desired.

Edited: I re-heated the leftovers for lunch but put them in a tortilla with shredded cheese and sour cream...yummy!
