                         -----CHICKEN FILLING-----
    1       lg           Plump chicken breast
      1/2   c            Celery (tops and tender,
                         -inside stalks)
      1/2   md           White onion
    2                    Or 3 peppercorns
    2       tb           Olive oil
    1                    Red pepper
    1                    Yellow pepper
    1 1/2   lg           Red onions
      1/2   c            Chopped cilantro leaves
                         Salt to taste
                         Pepper to taste
                         -----BEAN FILLING-----
    1       lb           Bag of pinto beans (red or
                         -pink)
    8       c            Water
                         Salt to taste
      1/4                Onion
      1/4   c            Olive oil
 
   Poach chicken with celery tops, onions and
   peppercorns.  Cook for about 15 minutes.  Let cool and
   remove skin.  When chicken is skinned, slice or shred,
   then saute with olive oil in wok or large skillet
   until barely browned around the edges.  Next add red
   and yellow peppers and red onions. Toss and saute for
   about 10 minutes. Watch closely so that peppers don't
   go limp.  Add cilantro leaves. Remove from heat.  Add
   salt and pepper to taste.  Combine with beans (see
   below).  Place in tortillas, top with salsa and serve.
   
   Cook beans in water for approximately 1 1/2 hours on
   medium heat.
   
   Make sure that beans are completely covered in water.
   Stir occasionally. Beans will absorb liquid and become
   soft.  Add more water if needed.  Add salt when beans
   are thoroughly cooked.  Remove from heat.  Add chopped
   onion.  (Onions will cook from the heat of the beans.)
   Drizzle with olive oil.  Let sit.
   
   TORTILLAS: Warm six large flour tortillas in microwave
   on high (in large zip lock bag to preserve moisture)
   for about 30 seconds.
   
   SALSA: Two large, peeled and chopped tomatoes.
   
   Serves 4.
