This hearty dish is bound to warm you up on a cold winter's day. If you are short on time you can easily make this old-fashioned beef stew in a slow cooker.

Directions
1. 
In a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker combine sweet peppers and onion. Sprinkle with tapioca. Top with chicken. In a medium bowl stir together undrained tomatoes, tomato paste, chipotle peppers, sugar, and salt. Pour over chicken and vegetables.
2. 
Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 9 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 4 1/2 hours.
3. 
Reserve four thighs, four drumsticks, and 1 cup of sauce; store* as directed below. Serve with Chicken Wraps with Lime Cream (recipe below). Heat potatoes according to package directions; serve with remaining chicken and sauce. Makes 4 servings + reserves.

Storage

  • *

    Remove meat from drumsticks and thighs; discard bones. Using two forks, pull meat apart into shreds. Place shredded meat and sauce in separate airtight containers. Seal and chill for up to 3 days. Use in Chicken Wraps with Lime Cream (see recipe below).

Variation

  • Chicken Wraps with Lime Cream:

    In a large skillet, heat reserved shredded chicken and sauce over medium heat until heated through. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together 1/4 cup mayonnaise; 1/4 cup dairy sour cream; 1 tablespoon lime juice; and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Warm four 10-inch flour tortillas according to package directions. Place a lettuce leaf on each tortilla. Using a slotted spoon, spoon chicken mixture onto tortillas, just below the center. Top each with 2 tablespoons of sour cream mixture and, if desired, sprinkle with 2 tablespoons snipped, fresh cilantro. Fold bottom edge of a tortilla up and over filling. Fold one side in slightly, then roll up from the bottom. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Serve wraps with lime wedges. Makes 4 servings.
