    Really, really good! I sped this preparation up a bit by subbing a 16oz. jar of salsa verde (green tomatillo based salsa) for the tomatillos and added a can of drained and rinsed black beans at the end for a little contrast and extra protein and fiber. Don't skip the garnishes either, it really makes it!

    This is truly outstanding! Reminded me of a Mexican take on Pho (Vietnamese soup). We used chicken legs and thighs for some added flavor. The freshly squeezed lime and cilantro are a must. We made the full recipe for 3 of us, and the leftovers are just as good! We also used serrano chiles, which added depth without being spicy -- add more if you like heat. Lightly fried up some corn tortillas on the side. SIMPLE to make, and comes together quickly! You need to make this!!

    Great soup to start and it got better in each of the two days afterwards. To speed up the cook time I used canned stock. Serving it with the garnishes helps too. The whole family loved it.

    Very tasty wholesome recipe and I will make it again but reduce the chicken by 1/3 and double the hominy.

    This is one of my husband's favorites. I have tried it with store bought stock and it's ok, with homemade there's a whole other dimension of flavor. I made it last night for my in laws, but forgot to get peppers. I added fire roasted diced green chiles (mild) and just used canned tomatillos, I didn't bother to boil them, just chopped them in the blender. It was a hit!

    Made exactly as instructed, including the homemade Brown Chicken Stock. It was delicious, filling, and comforting. Definitely a keeper!
