    Put all of it except the cilantro in a crock pot (no need to dice the chicken) cook on low for 7 hours, remove the chicken with a ladle, use immersion blender to thicken, add back the chicken and cross cut with 2 knives, top each bowl with cilantro and a little sour cream and cheese! YUMMY & FAST! - 3/24/12

    I loved it. I added more carrots and a can of whole kernal corn. Divided it into rubbermaid containers and tossed it in the freezer. Perfect lunch with a yogurt and an apple. - 3/15/12

    Great recipe! I added the garlic in after softening the onions for four mins. I then added a chilli, two peppers (I used a yellow and a red) and carrot in to saute for 2 mins before adding the chicken. It cooked perfectly. I replaced the black beans with kidney beans. Delish! - 9/2/12

    This was delicious. I skipped red peppers and topped each bowl with cheddar and avocado. I also skipped the blending step and just left it brothy. The chopping really doesn't take that long. I made this while sick and feeling horrible, and it was easy and even made me feel a little better! - 3/24/12
