I made this recipe myself, specifically for the contest. I tried it out at home, and it was delicious! The spices were good, and it was very filling. The rest of my family loved it, too!

This recipe makes a mild chicken stew that was excellent served over rice. I served jalapenos, green onions, avacado slices, sour cream & black olives alongside to top it with. I was confused by the amount of black beans listed in the ingredient list & didn’t know if they were dried or canned. I prepared a separate pot of black beans and added 1 cup to the stew. I also seared the chicken thighs before proceeding with the recipe. I deboned the thighs at the end and then added the shredded chicken back into the pot. As mentioned, the stew is very mild and I would probably add a little cumin to it when preparing again to add a little more Mexican flavor. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Great job!
