Accidently added the whole container of chicken broth (32 oz.). Actually with the extra chicken broth, it added to the amount for very few calories and it tasted great. This recipe is a keeper.

I scaled up some of the ingredients, hole green pepper, red pepper, onion. two chicken breast (because Costco packages them that way). 16 ounces of chicken broth, 8 ounces of water. I put 4 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, next time going to add entire 7 ounce can. Add salt to taste. Very tasty to begin with just need more of it. Made it a couple of times now.
