Guisado de Pollo (Chicken and Potato Stew)

My family loves "Guisado de Pollo (Chicken and Potato Stew)". It's an inexpensive and absolutely delicious crock pot meal, a classic Mexican comfort food that's sure to win your guest over.


1-1/2 cups fresh Mexican chorizo
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 small white onion, chopped
1 medium carrot, chopped
1 red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and finely chopped
1 cup finely chopped fresh or canned pineapple
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried thyme
6 cloves garlic, minced
3 canned chipotles in adobo sauce, finely chopped
1 jalapeño, quartered lengthwise
1 lb. Yukon gold potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
4 cups chicken stock
3 sprigs cilantro
1 (15-oz.) can whole peeled tomatoes in juice, crushed
Juice of 1 lime


In a saucepan over medium-high heat, cook Mexican chorizo until brown, breaking it up with a spoon as you cook. 

Use a slotted spoon to transfer to bowl, and put in crock pot. 

Season chicken with salt and pepper, and working in batches, add to pan, and cook, turning once, until browned on both sides and cooked through, about 15-20 minutes. 

Transfer to a plate and let cool; using a fork, finely shred meat and put in crock pot.
Return saucepan to heat, and add onion, carrot, and peppers; cook, stirring, until soft, about 8-10 minutes. 

Add pineapple, cumin, thyme, garlic, chipotles, and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 2-4 minutes.

Transfer to crock pot along with potatoes, stock, cilantro, and tomatoes, and cook at medium-low, until potatoes are tender, about 4-6 hours minutes. 

Add jalapeno 10-20 minutes before serving.

Then add lime juice, and season with salt and pepper before serving.
