    Great recipe as is! I serve this over rice for a more filling meal without the bread.

    GDud: Just right in spiciness. Used suggested spices, chicken, beans, corn, chicken broth. Put chicken breasts in whole and shredded at end. Used 1 can each of diced tomatoes, zesty chili diced tomatoes, Rotel fire roasted diced tomatoes. Served with cheese and crushed Doritos (nacho cheese). Would be good with cornbread.

    Really flavorful! Forgot to get green chiles while shopping & still tasted great. Save yourself a step & put chicken in slow cooker whole without browning, then shred it once done cooking.

    Excellent, easy recipe for busy families! I like to use Rotel, a rotisserie chicken, 1/2 a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning & add a block of Philadelphia cream cheese. The broth is amazing!

    I actually made this in a dutch oven instead of the crockpot and it was delicious. I thought the heat was perfect, but my boyfriend says I could have kicked it up a notch. Next time I will add some pinto beans to give it more substance. Really good recipe with some cheese and sour cream on top!

    I love this recipe. It is so delicious and filling. Like other quotes, you can tweek to how you like. I use Rotel diced with lime and the other original mild. It adds flavor without the cayenne. Also I like to add 1 medium chopped zucchini during the last hour so they dont get mushy but add a little crunch. I always get rave reviews for the original recipe and whatever way it is tweeked. You will love this recipe. Thanks for posting it.
