  • 1 4 to 5 lb rotisserie chicken meat cut off the bone, or 4 medium cooked chicken breasts, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 2 cups corn kernels
  • 2 green peppers de-seeded and sliced
  • 1 large dried chili or two fresh sliced jalapenos
  • 1 zucchini sliced
  • 1 28 ounce can diced tomatoes with the juice
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon adobo seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Toppings fresh chopped cilantro, green onions, fresh jalapenos, sliced avocado, cheese or a dollop of sour cream (skip the cheese + sour cream if you eat dairy-free).


  • Pull meat off the rotisserie chicken, or shred cooked chicken breasts with a fork. Set meat aside in a bowl.
  • In a large pot or dutch oven, add the the olive oil and onions and saute for 5 to 6 minutes over medium heat.
  • Add the zucchini, green pepper, corn, chili, diced  tomatoes with the juice, chili powder, garlic powder, and adobo spice. Bring pot to a boil, then reduce down to a simmer and add the cooked chicken to the pot. Cook for an additional 15 to 20 minutes until zucchini and peppers are cooked all the way through.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning as needed... The stew may need salt, depending on how salty your adobo spice is.
  • Serve in a bowl (we served ours over rice) and top with cilantro, more chilis, or sour cream.  Enjoy!


Note: This isn't the actual recipe from the movie, and certainly isn't a traditional Navajo stew- it's my attempt at the recipe based on Johnny's ingredients.  But, hey, it turned out pretty good and we plan on making this often!  This is just for fun, you should really just relax :)
