    • 3 1/4 cups store-bought low-sodium chicken broth
    • Coarse salt
    • 1 large poblano pepper
    • 1 (15-ounce) can diced tomatoes in their juices, preferably fire-roasted
    • 1/4 cup olive oil
    • 6 chicken thighs
    • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
    • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) Mexican chorizo sausage, casings removed
    • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
    • 2 cups medium-grain rice
    • 1/2 pound medium-large shrimp, peeled, tail-on, if desired, and deveined
    • 1 pound mussels, scrubbed
