This is another of my dad's old favorites we would have for our big Sunday dinner and it was always a big hit, especially in the winter. It is so flavorful, not to mention a little HOT!! And if you add either store bought or home made baked tortilla strips to a pretty lined basket, it really makes it a full meal!

How to Make Hot chicken stew-southwestern style

Step-by-Step

  1. season chicken w/ 1/2 tsp salt and a pinch of pepper. Heat 1 tbsp oil in large dutch oven, over med-high heat. Add half the chicken and brown 2 mins per side. Remove to a plate and brown remaining chicken.
  2. Add remaining oil to pot. Add onions and poblano pepper. Cook, stirring until softened, about 5 mins. Add garlic and cook, stirring for 30 seconds. Add chili powder, cumin, coriander, red pepper flakes, ( if using,) and remaining salt and pepper. Cook, stirring for 30 seconds.
  3. Return chicken, w/ the juices to the pot. Don't worry if you have to "stack" the chicken, it'll cook fine. Add tomatoes w/ the juices, broth, corn and red bell peppers. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, cook about 30 mins, or until chicken is cooked through. Serve in bowls. I also put a handful of baked tortilla strips in a lined basket so that people can add them to the stew. Delicious! You can buy them bagged in the fresh veggie aisle.
