Mexican Chicken Loaf

I found peppers in my garden.  After waiting since MAY for them to produce anything, I’d given up.  But I found 3 small ones hanging out and decided to utilize them along with the chicken pieces I was stewing in the crock pot today for nothing in particular to make a slightly tex-mex version of my usual chicken loaf.  Well, as it turns out, the taste is so subtle, I can’t really tell a difference between this and the original version.  I think it would take some stronger peppers, maybe jalapenos, or a can of rotel.  But either way, this was what I cooked.  It was mild, moist, and definitely safe for the anti-spicy.  Hubs thought it would be better served with other stuff, as he got kinda bored by the end of his bowl (I was going for meal in a bowl).  Serves 4.
