So delicious and easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly, set my crockpot for 6 hours and it was enjoyed by all of my New year's party guests. I served it with restaurant style tortilla chips, sour cream, chopped jalepenos, chives and shredded sharp cheddar cheese. One of my guests commented on the hint of cinnamon he tasted! :-)

My frozen corn seemed a little past its prime so I opted to cut fresh corn off the cob. Everyone really enjoyed this meal and requested I put it in our book of favorites. I also cooked it for 4 hours on high because I didn't get it into the crockpot as early as I'd planned. Everything was cooked just fine and I was pleased the potatoes weren't mushy; they were the perfect tenderness for this type of dish.

Love this recipe, it's super easy. I like to saute the onions before adding them so they aren't crunchy, but other than that it's a great recipe with an interesting and different flavor.

We love this recipe! changed it around a bit to add spices on top of sweet potatoes and it flavored them a bit better. Onions and tomatoes etc. on top of the chicken. Very good recipe!

Other than the fact that the sweet potatoes were still hard after all day in a slow cooker, I liked this recipe. Interesting combination of flavors and ingredients. As the other reviewer stated, the cinnamon really flavors this chili.

Excellent! I love how the cinnamon flavors this chili. I didn't have coriander so I used cumin and I made it on the stovetop since I don't have a slow cooker.
