    TheGrumpyChef's Note:

    This stew is great served as taco filling in a corn tortilla, with your favorite side of rice, and it is low in fat. If you can't find turkey chorizo, you may substitute using 8 oz extra-lean ground turkey and brown with 1 tsp chili powder. Cook and prep time does not include time to poach and shred chicken. This recipe is from Low-fat Mexican Cooking and has been slightly revised.

      Very good and full of spice/flavor. I used regular chorizo since I had some stashed in the freezer, diced tomatoes, and left out the potato since I served over rice. Thanks for posting!

      This is full of flavor. We loved it. I do have to say it's not the prettiest dish I have seen. With that said let me tell you what I discovered. 1st please use a medium saucepan. 2nd double the amount of tomatoes. 3rd decide if you want the potatoes or not. If you serve over rice I don't think there is a need for the added carbs. If serving like a true stew keep them in the ingredient list. This is very tasty. DH put some sour cream on his and said it made it even better. I served his with some flour tortillas and butter. Oh! I had to use the ground turkey with chili powder because I couldn't find the chorizo and for the tomatoes I used diced tomatoes because that is what I had on hand and I used 2 cans (14.4 oz) each. I served this yummy dish over saffron rice. Thanks for posting. Made for PAC Fall 2008.:)
