This recipe is really easy and comes out perfect every time. My only variations after I made it a few times were oven-roasted anaheim chiles (simple), whole milk instead of chicken broth, added cumin, mexican oregano and fresh cilantro to the chicken and a tad more garlic. (That's just what me and my BF like). Fine just the way it is, too! Thank you for sharing.
Perfect! Exactly like I used to get at college in Northern New Mexico. Wish I could get the large tubs of BUENO green chile in Michigan.
