Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 2 1/2 hours (or pressure cook for 45 minutes).


Remove the chicken from the pot and allow it to cool.


Discard the bones and the skin and chop the chicken meat into bite-size pieces.


Return the chicken to the pot and add the green chile peppers, habanero chile peppers, onion, garlic, carrots, celery, tomatoes and potatoes.


Simmer for 30 minutes, or until the potatoes and carrots are tender (or pressure cook for 10 minutes).
