Chipotle-Chicken Stew

Chipotle-Chicken StewRecipe
Chipotles are dried, smoked jalapeños; they give this stew a Southwestern flair guaranteed to take the chill off winter. Make and store the stew in the refrigerator the day before the party. Reheat over medium-low heat, and stir in the cilantro before serving.
