Place the chicken in a pot with poaching ingredients; cover with water and bring to boil. Reduce the heat to keep the liquid at a low, rolling boil and cook for 45-60 minutes. Turn off the heat and let cool to room temperature. Remove the chicken skin and bones; reserve the meat. Strain the liquid (you should have about 3 quarts). Store the leftover poaching liquid in the freezer for various uses.
Heat a large deep skillet over medium-high heat with the oil, two turns of the pan. Add the peppers, onion and garlic and season with salt, pepper and cumin. Cook, partially covered, for 7-8 minutes to soften, stirring occasionally. Add the chipotles, adobo sauce, poaching liquid, tomatoes and reserved chicken to the pan. Stir in the cilantro and simmer to thicken over medium-low heat, about 15 minutes. Serve with fixin’s of your choice and a side of black or red beans and brown rice cooked in leftover poaching liquid, according to package directions.
