This is a great recipe but a bit bland. I followed the recipe verbatim and will definitely make this again but with some additions. I recommend using twice the amount of cumin and oregano as well as an additional can of green chiles. Thanks for a good addition to my recipe collection! Read More

Only thing I changed is that I used 5lbs of thighs instead of whole chicken. I added a large can of broth instead of boullian. Ok I also added extra garlic and chillies but that's because I added a lot of broth and chicken. Read More

This chili was very tasty! I modified the recipe a bit by adding celery and sautéeing it beforehand with the onion and garlic. I also added 1/2 a chopped jalapeño black pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder to the chili. I left out the hominy simply bc the store was out. IT WAS YUMMY GOOD! And even my kiddos loved it!
