Well, I've discovered that I really like to stuff my food rather than top it with things lately so when I wanted a little Mexican food last night I made this. Juicy sweet corn, tender black beans, and chicken are the stars with some other yummy flavors.

  2. tTrim the fat from the chicken and butterfly to make it thin. Then season with all listed seasonings and pound down to 1/4"-1/2" thick all over. Be careful not to rip it.
  3. Put about 1/3 cup of the salsa mixture into the center of the chicken and roll it up tot he middle from both sides- seal with toothpicks. Flip and add seasonings to the top.

  5. Remove the chicken and take out all toothpicks, careful not to rip the chicken(again). While you do this, keep all the drippings in the pan and increase the heat to medium/high to create a little sauce.
