    Ohmikeghod's Note:

    This experiment is one that turned out wonderful. It has a marvelous mexican taste without overwhelming the taste buds with heat, like jalapenos would do. I originally came up with this when we had an extra rotisserie chicken that we didn't know what to do with. Don't let the ingredients stop you from cooking this dish. I've made it with rotisserie chicken, boneless/skinless breasts or thighs, and even canned chicken. I've used canned tomatoes, fresh tomatoes, and cherry tomatoes, I've substituted chicken bullion for broth. I've made this with and without bell peppers, The only real thing that remains constant is the rice and the spices. This is a recipe to have fun with.

    1. 1
      prep: Cut chicken into 1-inch chunks. Remove stem and seeds from bell peppers. Finely chop bell peppers, Onion, garlic, and ortega chiles.
    2. 2
      Use a large, deep pan. Drizzle 1 tbsp olive oil into it, and heat the pan. Please note that spices are put in twice: once with the chicken, and once with the rice, so don't put them away after the first measurement.
    3. 3
      Place chicken in heated pan. Sprinkle ¼ tsp chili powder, ¾ tsp cumin, and ¼ tsp onion powder over chicken, stirring frequently, until chicken is thoroughly heated.
    4. 4
      Remove chicken from pan. Add the remaining tbsp of olive oil and the pepper mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, for approximately 6 minutes, until onion is soft and liquid has reduced out and disappeared, I don't use salt/pepper during this step, since there is enough in the rotisserie chicken already.
    5. 5
      Add the chicken broth, salsa, diced tomatoes, chili powder, and cumin to the pepper mixture. Bring to a boil.
    6. 6
      Stir in the rice, and put the chicken back in the pan, along with any juices that may have left the chicken. Cover and cook for approximately 10 minutes, stir in the frozen peas and cook for an additional 10 minutes or until rice is tender.
