    Roxygirl in Colorado's Note:

    From "Best Recipes All New Slow Cooker", this flavorful and economical recipe is very quick to throw in the crock pot. It is great wrapped in tortillas or served on top of rice (My kids enjoy it both ways!). I double the recipe but not the spices. Note: 11/8/06 I added about 3 tbs. (plus the juice) of crushed pineapple and it was a very good variation!

      This is an update on my previous review. I had previously tried the recipe, but ended up changing it so much that I could not give any stars. What I ended up with was very tasty, so this was on my 'to try again' list. This time I did follow the recipe, for the most part, and it was delicious! My crock is very large, so I pretty much doubled the recipe to keep it from burning. I didn't have a jalapeno pepper but I added some really hot salsa. I love the combination of the sweet from the sweet potatoes with the spicy and the heat from the salsa. Yum! I served this on whole wheat sprouted tortillas with ff sour cream and hot sauce. Thanks for posting, I'm so glad I went back to try the recipe again. This is aa keeper!

      As another reviewer mentioned, this is a unique recipe. I liked it, but I will make a few changes the next time I make it. I didn't care for the green pepper or corn, so I will substitute them for an extra sweet potato (I loved the slight sweetness in this recipe). I thought this recipe makes a nice side dish -- it need not be limited to burritos.

      All of these flavors combined make up one of the most unique recipes I have had in quite a while. I agree that 4 hours is probably enough time, I had mine on low for 5 hours and it was a little on the dry side. I plan on easing up on the chili powder and adding a little salt next time. No cilantro for me! Served in wheat tortillas and leftovers will be served over rice.
