  5. Simmer over very low heat, stirring occasionally, 1hr+.

RECIPE BACKSTORY
Translation (probably inaccurate): Green Mole Chicken Chili. Or, more simply, Muy Yum-O! You can sub fresh for canned, or canned for fresh, of any ingredients. I like to stew a whole chicken, then make different stuff out of it. The local Sunflower Market closed (boo!) here and had a 50% off sale, so I stocked up on some sauces & condiments. And sushi. Yeah- I know- one shouldn't eat sushi that's half off, but I live on the EDGE, baby.
