This was really great! I made this on the stove top in my dutch oven and ended up having to add about an extra cup of broth as well as doubled the spices -- just be aware if you don't use the crock pot.

Awesome!!! Super easy and amazing! Thanks a ton for sharing this gem! The only thing I did in addition to the recipe was add about 5 shakes of Tobasco verde.
