How to make it

  1. In a heavy based saucepan, heat up the olive oil over medium heat. Once it’s hot enough, add the onion and garlic, then stir and let it cook until it softens. Add the potatoes, carrots, and peppers. Stir and fry them lightly for a couple of minutes.
  2. Pour the Chipotle Enchilada Sauce into the pan, add the chicken stock, the Cantina Beans (drained), bring to a boil, and add the shredded chicken. Season with a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper. Simmer on a lower temperature for 15 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked through.
  3. Finally, pour in the single cream and the parsley, stir and simmer for 5 more minutes. Remove from the heat, and taste, then adjust the seasoning if necessary. Serve warm and garnish with a spoonful of creme fraiche and a handful of grated cheese scattered on top.
