This was very good and only giving 4 "stars" because I made modifications after reading the earlier comments and for what I had on-hand. Used 4 bone-in chicken thighs (removed skin after frying slightly) put these on bottom of casserole dish with slices of pepper jack cheese on top of each. Combined all other ingredients -- used diced tomatoes with green chilies; 1 can of chilies only and 1 can of Mexican corn -- mixed well and poured over thighs. Cooked for approximately 1 hour -- and my husband and I really enjoyed! Without meat the veggies

I made this exactly as recipe called for. It was okay but nothing that jumped out. I had 3/4 left over (3 of adults eatting). The second night I added a can of Mexicorn and a can of regular Rotel. I would give this 5 stars the second night. Rotel gave it a much needed kick.

I made a few adjustments: boneless skinless chicken thighs instead of pork, roasted Hatch chilies instead of canned, converted rice (partially cooked) instead of quick cooking rice. I probably used closer to a cup of cheese than a half cup because I like cheesy dishes to be gooey.

Our family loved this recipe. We like chili verde, but this is alot easier and faster.J. Wenatchee, Wn.

This was a hit with my husband and my adult son. I substituted boneless, skinless chicken thighs for the pork since my husband prefers to avoid eating pork. It tasted great anyway. Also, the "quick cooking brown rice" had me a little confused. All I could find at the market was Uncle Ben's instant brown rice that cooks in 10 minutes. That must have been what the recipe author had in mind because it worked out fine.
