  1. Blend the habanero pepper and tomatoes together to make a paste. Cook this paste with a small amount of oil until it thickens and loses its raw flavor. Remove from the heat.
  2. Place the chicken pieces in a pot with the stock cubes, onions, and thyme. Cover with water, and bring to a simmer. When the chicken is almost cooked, add the beef and cook until well done. Add salt and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes. Drain the meat, reserving the liquid.
  3. Grill or fry the cooked chicken and beef.
  4. Place the pot of tomato stew back on the heat, and add the water from cooking the chicken. Stir in the grilled meat, and add salt to taste.
  5. Cover the pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until the ingredients are well mixed.
  6. Serve with fried plantain, boiled plantain, fried yam, boiled yam, egusi, or white rice.
