I found this while looking through the list of possible contest winners. This was very good! It was colorful and tasty! Maybe next time I will try kidney beans...

This was quite good, a filling and easy meal. I especially liked the ingredients in the sauce, which gave it a spicy kick. I did find it a bit runny though, so I had to simmer it for a few minutes uncovered to get a thicker texture. And I'm not sure it would serve 6-8 in my family. For us it was more like 3-4 -- although we were really hungry!!

I am always in need of recipes that I can use left-over chicken in. This one was excellent. Very hearty and a wonderful blend of spices perked us up. I doubled this recipe and froze half of it for a quick no-fuss dinner. Thanks papergoddess.
