Ingredients

4 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, roughly chopped
4 large garlic cloves, roughly chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried cumin
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
3 cups shredded cooked chicken
few dashes Worcestershire sauce
4 cups chicken stock
1 lime
1 cup cooked white rice


0- For chicken, you can use a store bought rotisserie chicken as the original recipe. I made my own. I brought a pot of water with chicken thighs to a boil, skimmed the water and brought down to a simmer for 1 1/2 hours. The chicken shreds beautifully and dark meat is tastier in stew.


- Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and saute for 1 to 2 minutes. Add garlic and jalapeno, and sweat until soft and translucent. Add spices and cook for 1 to 2 minutes until fragrant. Add can of tomatoes, chicken, stock and Worcestershire. Bring to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes.


- Cut lime in half, squeeze juice into the pot, and then add the juiced halves as well. Add white rice and cook 5 minutes longer to warm rice through. Add season to salt, fish out the lime pieces and serve.
