8 days ago on FoodNetwork.com

I think this might be the 3rd or 4th time I have made this and every time is just delicious! This time I halfed the recipe and totally messed up on my measurements and less carrots more celery and it was just as delicious! Basically if this is your first time cooking this Devine soup, you really can't mess it up if you just stick to the basic ingredients!...

Not my first me now my last. Delicious! I add carrots instead of green beans as my husband is not fond of them. This recipe is always a sure fire way to get my son to come visit from college. Only problem is I never get any leftovers, he steals them.

Very tasty. I did not use these with a dipping sauce I added them to a nice clear homemade broth. Nice delicate soup for my grandmother. Will try these again when a recipe calls for meatballs.

Absolutely delicious! I make Posole all the time but never this quickly with such flavors that developed in such a short time. I grilled my corn and peppers on the bbq, faster, I did not add the lime juice. I added a extra corn cob because I had one. I will be making another batch tomorrow without the hominy as I tend to use it as a Poblano tomatillos...

I watched this show and knew I needed to make that sauce. The sauce is amazing and flavorful! I put it over grilled chicken with some melted jack cheese and it was perfect. When I have more time Ill try the rellenos.

ttThe recipe doesn't say add a half box of beef stock but if you watch the show he does add beef stock, so I was lucky that I saved the show. I was absolutely delicious! I would not change a thing based on my palate. Those non rosemary lovers, change it to two stalks! I also made the parsnip puree as well and I am addicted! I cooked mine a bit ...

First, watched this on t.v. so don't add a stick of butter, he only adds a tab or two. Because I watched the show I did not make that mistake so I only have to say FRIGGIN AWESOME! It will always be on my table along with the mashed potatoes! I really loved this!

Okay I followed this recipe 99%! I purchased my Moroccan lemons from Whole Foods in the olive section. I also didn't salt as much as she did, only 1 teaspoon. Figured anyone can add their own salt to taste. I was beyond mind blowing delicious! Going to make this for company for sure!!

I have to say my grandmother loved this and that's saying a lot!! 2 things I did different.....I had wild rice so I used that instead of brown and so my grandma could make sure she wasn't eating too much meat, I made little turkey meatballs. I used my own chicken stock so I let everyone salt to their taste buds! It will forever be a comfort food...

Trying several recipes today, planning ahead for company, this is perfect. The curry is just light enough to serve to a sensitive palate. I followed the recipe exactly. If it were just for my family I would go with more spice, maybe use red curry as other reviews said to do for more spice. Can't wait to see how it tastes tomorrow if it tastes this...

This was wonderful and so fresh tasting. I went with what I had in the fridge so I used carrots instead of green peppers. I also added a clove of garlic. The bite from the red pepper flakes just makes the dish. Oh I threw in a Bay leaf too. Will make this again for sure. My second helping it was at room temperature and it was just a Yummy!!"

Mar 12, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

If you added the lemon with the wine and stock and reduced it enough the cream should not have done that. My guess that it wasn't reduced enough and there was too much acid still, reduce this recipe a lot before adding the cream.
