28 ounce can fire roasted diced tomatoes

In a Dutch oven, heat oil over medium. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic - cook until the onions begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add chicken and cook about 6 minutes. Stir in cilantro, coffee, chili powder, brown sugar, red pepper, kidney beans and tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.
