“This stew is great served as taco filling in a corn tortilla, with your favorite side of rice, and it is low in fat. If you can't find turkey chorizo, you may substitute using 8 oz extra-lean ground turkey and brown with 1 tsp chili powder. Cook and prep time does not include time to poach and shred chicken. This recipe is from Low-fat Mexican Cooking and has been slightly revised.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in small saucepan over med-low heat. Add chopped onion and garlic, and saute for 2-3 minutes. Add chorizo and saute mixture for 4-6 minutes until the onion is soft.
  2. Add tomatoes, chiles (with a bit of adobo sauce), sugar, and water to the pan. Stir, season with salt and pepper and add potaotes.
  3. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occassionally; then add the chicken and simmer until the contents have a consistency of thick stew.
  4. Note: To poach chicken breasts, place in large saucepan, cover with water, and add pinch of salt,(may add large slice of onion, crushed garlic and peppercorn for extra seasoning), cover and gently simmer for 25 minutes. Allow chicken to cool in the water, then remove it. Shred the breast with a fork.
