"This was certainly quick and easy recipe for lazy days of summer or any other times. Very good recipe, but I did have to up the spices a little more after tasting the dish throughout it's cooking time. Thanks for sharing."

"Delicious! However I did not use a slow cooker. I just baked in oven on 375 until the cornbread was done."
