I used canned Chili's instead of the jalapeno. threw it all in the crock pot after cooking the onions and garlic in a pan to soften. Came out amazing this time I also threw in leftover wild rice

This is a great recipe. I like the zip...but if you're a wimp you might cut the cayenne. Will definitely make again.

My family loved this recipe and wanted me to make it again the next week. I replaced the jalapeno with a small can of mild green chilis. It's a quick, nutritious comfort food!
