1. This is a great dish to use up left-over roast turkey. You can, of course, use chicken instead of turkey for the chopped fowl. Or even duck. Hm, now that's an idea. Duck...
2. One of the things that's really nice about this dish is that except for the turkey (which presumably is leftovers from some other dinner) and the wild rice, it's a throw-together. Most of the ingredients can be found canned in the grocery store. Even the wild rice in my grocery store comes in packets that, when cooked, make a convenient two cups. If you cooked everything fresh, like roasting and skinning the peppers yourself, it would doubtless be even better, but it would be much more work, and it's very good just the way it is.
3. The chilies are supposed to be mild, unless you are insane. (Two cups of jalapeños? Ouch.) My local Acme carries a couple of different brands of mild, chopped green chilies, maybe Anaheims, although they aren't identified as to variety. I always use Tabasco for the 'hot pepper sauce'. I love Tabasco.
4. The wild rice takes the longest. Start it first, then dice up the onions and garlic and sauté them while the rice cooks. Then just throw everything together.
