This was excellent - made this on top of the stove instead of in the crock pot (not a big fan of the crock pot since I'm gone more than 11 hours everyday - mine doesn't have a timer). Stir fried the chicken with the onions, peppers, and garlic and then added the remaining ingredients and simmered it for about 20-30 minutes. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting.

I loved this. Omited the green chiles, as I didn't have any on hand and added one chipotle and some of the adobo sauce it was in. Like the other commenter said, I wouldn't serve with without lots of cheese and sour cream. Even my two year old loved it.

I made this y'day and the only sub I made was using pink beans instead of black. I would definitely make the cheese & sour cream standard as the toppings and not optional but to each their own. I am just a big fan of cheese & sour cream;) Very easy and liked the combination of spices. Will make again. Served over rice seasoned with sazon. Thanks Tarbean! Recipe #1 for Pick A Chef.
