annmartinson 2 years agothis is awesome! I used 16 oz water with 3 tablespoons powdered boullion instead of chicken broth and also 24 oz can of malt liquor for beer (could buy single). also skipped orange zest. My family loves hot-spicy. I usually have to tone it down. they didn't add any hot sauce to this and I was quite happy. it is 'green' spicy. Also the first night I served w/white rice. mistake. it is best on its own as a soup/stew. the second night it was terrific and I served with flour tortillas folded in half over melted cheese. delicious! also, I made this in the crockpot slow-cooker. browned everything first in a pan on the stove. loaded it up, cooked on high for 2 hours, then low. worked great. need to let it cook long enough to soften chiles well. Next time I think I'll add it all together and let it cook. I liked the peppers softer after the overnight-in-the-fridge.
RMSchade 4 years agoTastes fantastic. I used lean pork chops instead and the meat just falls apart.
