This was extremely tasty and simple! I used 1 can of Ro-Tel and 1 can of fire-roasted diced tomatoes as well as a can of pintos instead of kidney beans because that is what was in the pantry. The flavor of this stew was AMAZING! Especially considering, you throw it in, shred the chicken and voila! I am DEFINITELY making this again with no changes :)

Easy and yummy! I left out the onion because I made it before I went to work early in the morning. I used hot Rotel tomatoes because we like it hot. Next time, I will chop some green pepper and onion the night before to throw in. Thanks for a super easy and tasty recipe!

This was absolutely delicious. I added a can of tomato paste by mistake. I like a thicker stew, so the addition was perfect. I ate it served over brown rice topped with a little cheese and sour cream. Yummy!!
