I have tried this recipe a couple of times and as is, I wouldn't give it 5 stars, but with changes it is fabulous! Here are my changes...I diced up fresh tomatoes (anywhere from 2-4 tomatoes depending on how much of that flavor you want) instead of canned and they were perfectly ripe, so it worked! I also added in a fresh yellow and red bell pepper and added more chili powder and cumin. Those make it SO much more flavorful and yummy! I also used ALL chicken broth instead of any water (homemade from boiling the leftovers of a rotisserie chicken--so much better than the canned stuff!!), added about 2 tsp garlic salt, skipped the hominy and just put in corn. I added another 4 oz can of green chiles and stirred in some sour cream 1/2 hour before I served it (just like many other reviews suggested). I threw everything in the crockpot and let it cook for 5+ hours to let all the flavors come together. As soon as the chicken is cooked through, (about 3 hours into it), I take out the chicken, shred it with a knife and fork, and then put it back in to soak up some more flavor. Add crushed tortilla chips, cheese, sour cream, avocado, fresh cilantro to top it off and it's amazing!
