"yummm...i am not one to change recipes before I try them the first time, but I have stomach problems so I made this without the chiles, cayenne and jalapeno..it was DELICIOUS!! I did add about a tablespoon of regular (not hot) chili powder and some hungarian paprika with the chicken. garlic and onion and let it toast to bring out the flavor. So sorry to the person submitting this that I had to change it a little before trying it!!!"
