This is a fantastic recipe. I just use a pound of whatever chicken I have on hand, and I don't use tortillas in the crockpot. I serve the chicken stew with a handful of tortilla chips or Fritos, and it is excellent. It also doesn't have to be precise to work... you can improvise and substitute as you wish. I've used Tabasco instead of chile powder, which also works well.
Spicy Chicken Stew
Salsa and chili powder add spice to this chicken stew, but probably not too much for timid tasters or kids. If you want to kick up the heat, use a hot salsa and a dash of hot sauce or ground red pepper.
