Step by Step Method

Step 1

To a 4-quart slow cooker, add onion, bell pepper, garlic and chipotle chiles. Stir to combine. Top with potatoes and tomatoes.

Step 2

Heat a large non stick skillet on medium-high. Add chicken and cook for about 2 minutes per side, until lightly browned. Transfer chicken to slow cooker. To skillet, add broth, scraping up any browned bits with a spoon; pour broth over chicken. Sprinkle with cumin. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours, or until chicken is no longer pink in center and falling off the bone. (Alternatively, cook on high for 3 to 3 1/2 hours.)

Step 3

Gently remove chicken from slow cooker. Turn off heat and let stand, uncovered, for 15 minutes to absorb flavors and thicken slightly. (NOTE: Do not stir as vegetables are very tender.) Debone chicken in large pieces. Divide chicken among serving bowls and top with vegetable mixture. Drizzle oil over top, dividing evenly. Sprinkle with salt and cilantro and serve with lime wedges.

Awesome stoup! The smokiness of the chipotles, the pop of the tomatoes and the brightness of the lime juice made for a wonderful dinner. Used jarred roasted red peppers. I did make this on the stove instead of the crockpot. Definitely a do again recipe. Thank you for sharing another great recipe Teresa! Made for Billboard Recipe tag.

With Teresa's consent, I tweaked this to make it in a 6-quart electric pressure cooker. In the end, we omitted the addition of salt and cilantro, but were still very pleased with our dinner. We enjoyed the fresh clean taste of this robust almost stew-like soup. FWIW, I had Laura Pazzaglio of hippressurecooking dot com review my conversion, and she gave it a thumbs up. The recipe as used has been loaded as Recipe 29426 on Recipezaaz for easier access.
