Puerta Rican Stew

I stumbled across the best recipe blog ever. I found this recipe which you can see here.

It sounded simple, healthy, and tasty! And it turned out to be exactly what it sounded like. I modified it a bit.

Puerta Rican Stew (8 Servings, 5 PointsPlus)

1.5 c water
1 bunch cilantro
2 poblano peppers
2 jalepenos
6 garlic cloves
1 medium onion
2 lb chicken breast
1 tbsp no-sodium chicken bullion
1 tbsp cumin
1 lb red potatoes, cubed
1 c fat-free mozzarella, shredded

In a blender, liquify the water, cilantro, poblanos, jalepenos, garlic, and onion until it forms a thick green sauce. Put potatoes and chicken in crock pot. Pour the sauce on top and add the bullion and cumin.

Stir and cook on high for 6 hours. Shred the chicken breast and return to crock pot. Salt to taste. Serve with cheese sprinkled on top.

There was plenty of left overs. I put them in separate containers and froze them for quick and easy lunches.
