  • 1  (14.5-ounce) can stewed tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/4  cup  chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1  lime, cut into 4 wedges
  • Avocado

Preparation

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add minced garlic and chicken; sauté 2 minutes. Add chile powder and cumin; stir well. Add water, salt, broth, and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Top with cilantro, avocado and serve with lime wedges.

to make this more quick, zone friendly I add frozen vegetables…

If you are Canadian and can’t handle the spice, watch out for the spice element. I enjoy using Rotelle canned tomatoes with peppers and then reduce the chipotle spice down to half (I am from the south)
