Top Review by bluesali

This was excellent! But whew! Spicy! I must have had very hot peppers. My jalapeno was quite large and I couldn't find anaheims so I used a poblano. Also substituted corn for the southwest veggies - we don't have them in PA. I also used turkey thighs instead of legs. But it was delicious. In order to turn down the heat a little when having leftovers, I added some more chicken, more broth and some green beans. Even better!
