    DeniseBC's Note:

    I got this from a friend at church; I haven't made it yet, but she brought it to a potluck and it was so yummy I had to ask for the recipe. It is credited to The Bean Education & Awareness Network. Prep time includes marinating time. ****update**** I messed up the marinating once I finally made this and left out the garlic and red pepper in the marinade. Instead I put the garlic in while sauteing the chicken and put in the red pepper with all the other spices. This made it pretty spicy, but good!

      This was really good and easy to prepare. I used a red and a green pepper for color. It didn't have anywhere near enough spice though, so I had to add some more red pepper flakes. I will add more spices next time. I live in Iowa, and we don't have anything Cuban around here, so this was fun to try. Thanks for posting.
