This was really good. I do recommend actually chopping the tomatillos prior to putting them in the blender--it will work better that way! I used chicken thighs instead of breasts because I didn't want the meat to be to dry. It had great flavor but not too spicy. Read More

This broth was unbelievably good! I did not care for the hominy so I might use rice next time. This is definitely a keeper! Read More

Broth was GREAT. And that’s about where it ends. Needed more chicken, more everything, but the flavor was great once salted / seasoned with some Cajun seasoning. Definitely a great base “soup”. Thank you! Read More

Great recipe. I like a lot of flavor so I seasoned my chicken with adobo seasoning and I added some salt and pepper to the broth. Read More

This was really good but too much lime flavor which is the reason for 4 instead of 5 stars. I will make it again with much less lime...Easy to add back in but you can t take it away. Read More
