My mother-in-law gave this to me because she knows how much we like spicy food. Yummy!! Came from a magazine, don't know which one.

I really like this recipe. I did make some changes, but I think it was in the same spirit of the recipe. I didn't have a red pepper so used green pepper. I also added about 1/4 cup tomato sauce and chopped fresh cilantro. I also skipped the jar of salsa (probably made up for this with the tomato sauce and cilantro I added). I only had a can of chili (pinto) beans. I did not rinse the beans. reduced the cumin to 1 tsp and added 1 tsp oregano. When I make this again, I think I will season the chicken before cooking so it marinades. Even though I made changes, I think it's a great recipe so thanks for putting me in the right direction. It was yummy.
I added tomato sauce for extra flavor.
This is really delicious. Loved the flavour and that it is nutritious and low fat. It is hot & spicy and is wonderful for cold winter nights.
