This recipe is quick to prepare for crockpot. Great taste but not spicy. I did use medium salsa as written and 3/4 cup of water. I will try 2 cups of salsa next time.

I think it needed a little more spice. Tasteful and low cal.

I would make this again. But I would bake it in a pumpkin. Clean it out and oil the outside with oil rmember to put the top back

Absolutely loved this super simple recipe!!! I did tweak for personal preference. I added an additional 1/2 tsp cumin and used chili beans instead of kidney beans!! I also made it on the stove but will definitely try crock pot I just didn't wanna wait. Will probably need to double recipe next time. Yummy

Great comfort food recipe, bonus points for also being a crock pot recipe. Perfect for a weeknight family dinner. I made a minor substitution using pinto beans instead of northern because I had one not the other. I opted for mild salsa since I'm not into "spicy" food. However, for those who like more heat, you can adjust accordingly. Left overs the next day were just as tasty as round one. Easy, tasty and filling! Definitely adding it to my menu rotation.
