    Love this recipe! I’ve made it a couple of times now. I’ve been using one fresh jalapeño instead of the green chilis because it’s what I had on hand, and it totally worked. One note is it doesn’t say to drain the tomatoes, and with the juice from that plus broth I’ve had an overflow. So you either need to drain the tomatoes some, or put in less broth.

    It was way too spicy, even though I cut back on the spices to begin with

    Perfectly, I added olives, which made it better even!
