From Womans Day and tweaked by me. Love the ease of the recipe and how you can make the garnishes do the flavor enhancement. Great for cold nights.

Easy to put together and delicious! I was surprised that the recipe had no chicken broth in it, but there was enough liquid from the other ingredients to make a a stew-like consistency. I used a 10 oz. can of Rotel, and 3 chicken thighs and 3 chicken legs. A bit spicy, but just the right amount. This is a keeper! Made for the Dining Daredevils for ZWT5.
