This is a fabulous healthy stew that you can make as spicy as you like. Ease back on the amount of jalapeno if you like it less spicy. It is a great meal on a cold night! It is great served with sour cream or a little shredded cheese on top (or both!)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and saute for 2 minutes. Add garlic and jalapeno and cook until soft and translucent, about 2 minutes. Add spices and cook for 1 to 2 minutes more.
  2. Add tomatoes, chicken, Worcestershire, and stock. Bring to a simmer and cook 20 minutes.
  3. Cut the lime in half and squeeze the juice into the pot.
  4. Add white rice and cook 5 minutes longer to warm rice through. Season to taste with salt.

I love this stew. I added 1 can of black beans and 1 can of corn. Freezes well. Thanks.

Very disappointing! Too much tomato, and not enough spices to give it any taste. Will not ever make again.
