Have made this many times since I found it and the family loves it! so much flavor and super easy. the only change I do is I throw in some salsa verde along with everything else.

A good dish. It probably won't be on the rotation too much just because we don't eat a lot of pork but it is a nice change from traditional pork recipes. I substituted the canned chilies with the hatch chilies being roasted in our area.

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.
