"Very tasty! I wanted to stretch the recipe so I doubled it and added 1 1/2 C. of pearl barley and 4 1/2 C. of water."

"I love this and so does everyone that eats it. I used salsa verde instead of green chilies which gave it a nice but mild kick. I also used sweet corn instead of hominy. Other than that, I left the recipe as is and it came out great."
