CL Comments: You can streamline the preparation of this dish when you have canned diced tomatoes and chicken broth on hand.
Amy's Comments: Fantastic!! Super easy to make. Just the right amount of heat (spicy but not inferno - if you dont like it too spicy, cut the cayenne and hot sauce down). I couldnt believe how huge the portions are! Very filling! A definite keeper!!
