Set a Dutch oven on the burner. Pour in the oil and get it nice and hot over medium-high heat.
Toss in the onions, green peppers and jalapenos. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until tinged with brown; then add the garlic and cook 1 minute more. Toss in the cubed chicken and cook, stirring, til the pieces are coated with the veggies.
Crumble in the sausage and keep cooking and stirring til it loses its pink color. Toss in the remaining meats and the liver puree. Douse the meats with the broth and add the cayenne, cumin, oregano and bay leaf. Stir in the rice and bring it all to a boil. Cover and turn the heat down low. Cook for 20 minutes without stirring. Pull the pot off the stove and remove the bay leaf. Now give it a stir and it's ready to serve. Serves 6.
