    Chandra M's Note:

    Thumbs up & awesome is how my husband described this stew. I served with steamed brown rice, but tortillas or tortilla chips would be good as well. You can vary the amount of spiciness by adjusting the amount of chipotle chile you add. Put the chicken broth and can of tomatoes in the fridge overnight to prevent the chicken from overcooking and getting dry (or reduce cook time). Adapted slightly from Cook's Illustrated Best Make Ahead Recipes.

      The flavor of this was excellent, we really enjoyed it! I found it to be pretty liquidy so I added nearly 3 cups of instant brown rice. That really helped! I served it with cheese on top. Yum. DH said it would be good with cornbread too.

      Nice recipe. I left out the tapioca bc I didn't have any and used cornstarch to thicken it up a bit. Lots of flavors.
