I thought this recipe was really good. I did think the rice came out too mushy, so next time I would cook the rice separately. The green chiles gave it a little zip, but I like super spicy, so I would probably also add some jalapenos for that extra kick. All in all, it was very good and I will definitely make again!

This is a great dinner. The whole family loves it and I have picky eaters, including my husband. I use chicken breast instead of thighs and long grain brown rice instead of white. I also omit the chiles because of the kids. I make this at least once a week.

My husband absolutley loved this one. I made some modifications- chicken breast instead of thighs and uncooked brown rice instead of the converted white rice. The rice was fine and not gummy at all. I also added some cayenne pepper and Mexican-style chili power.

Just like every other recipe I find online (especially slow cooker ones) I had to add a little bit of my own spin - but I think that this is par for the course. I made this today and my husband had two servings and I will be bringing some to my dad tomorrow. I added the rice (not converted but regular since I saw no point in buying rice when I had some at home) during the last 35 minutes of cooking and before I served it I tasted it and added some salt/pepper/paprika. You have to taste all of your food because everyone's taste is different :)

Ugh, had I read the reviews first I would not have made this... It took long to cook, was gooey, and bland. Bummer.

I agree with the others. The rice did not turn out and it was bland. I will be trying it again but will do the rice seperate and add some more kick to it. Overall like the idea and in changing a few things I think it will turn out better.

Cooking time much too long for the rice and almost completely lacking in flavor. No spices? Bland, very bland and gooey. The final result was an oatmeal like appearance; edible but very disappointing. My family smothered the final product with salsa which did help but most of it still went in the trash. Cooking rice seperately and the addition of spices could improve this dish tremendously.

6 hours is way too long for the rice to cook. It became a gummy mess. I really did not enjoy the flavor.

I have tried other recipes similar to this. I would cook the rice separate to this. My daughter called it "squisy stuff.' I did love the flavor.

This was very simple to make and it tasted very good but I think 6hrs was too long. It was very thick and didn''t look as creamy as it did in the picture, but overall my whole family enjoyed it.
