Like others, we found that we enjoyed this better doubling the chicken broth amount and doing a full jalepeno, instead of half. Still did not have much heat to it by our rating. Made enough for two and leftovers the next day. We did this with rice and found the leftovers to be even better since the broth soaked in with the rice overnight. It turned out to be better than we expected and prep was pretty easy.
