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!!

Yumm, yumm, yumm! I was looking for something fast easy and light to cook over the weekend for lunches this week and this was just perfect. As I was putting it together, I realized I was out of black beans (everything was already in the crock pot) so I decided to proceed with pinto beans instead. Added a teaspoon of cumin as well as I like the smokiness it adds to fare of this sort. The stew was hearty filling and bursting with flavor. It was also pretty mild so if you are seeking some heat drop in that jalapeno as the posting chef suggests. For me this made six good size serving all of which I will enjoy, lapping up every drop with a little corn bread. Thanks!

Putting a packet of taco seasoning in a stew is a great idea! This was super tasty. I did make some changes though. I just cut up the raw chicken and mixed it in with the other ingredients at the start, and I used a LOT of chopped dried chili peppers. Tasted great, and the leftovers were even better. Try topping this with shredded cheddar, greek yogurt, green onions, and sliced serrano peppers... SO GOOD

This is an awesome recipe!! I cut the recipe in half & used just black beans, 1 (101/2 oz) can of mild Rotel, my own taco seasoning, added 1 cup veggie broth & used 3 oz tomato paste instead of the tomato sauce. The chicken, once cooked, just shredded apart so easily. I think this cooked down in about 5 hours. Thank you so much for sharing!

Excellent and super easy. I added a chopped jalapeno b/c we like things spicy and a chopped green pepper. Definitely adding it to the rotation. As a working mom this is a life saver!

This is really good. I also think it makes 6 good size servings. I threw in some jalapenos for added heat and because we really enjoy the heat used El Pato hot mexican tomato sauce. Very easy to prepare. I like it when dinner is ready without too much fuss at the end of the day. Thanks DuChick for posting. Congratulations! on being Chef of the day!
