"This was an okay recipe. I will make it again because of the ease, but it needs some punch. I thought the jalapeno would give it flavor, but it didn't. I also think the cook time in the slow cooker should be increased to 8 hours. Although the potatoes were cubed identically, some needed more cooking time. I'm thinking of increasing the salt and pepper to an 1/2 teaspoon and adding some additional spices, but not certain as to what they will be. Looking forward to reading other cooks recommendations for this recipe."
