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.
It does have a very unique taste. The sweet taste adds something to it. My husband and kids really like it but I would put less chili powder in next time.
This tasted funny on its own, but I paired it with Tish's Crockpot Peppery Roast #20453 and liked it a lot better. I know that defeats the point of vegatarianism, but, I like meat too darn much. I too used wheat tortillas and liked the flavor they added to the recipe. If I were to make this again and eat the recipe as directed I would add some salsa verde or avocado slices. Maby some cinnamon to bring out the sweet potatoe flavor more. Thanks for sharing this recipe and expanding my culinary horizons. :)
These burritos were ok. If I made the recipe again, I'd add some cayenne pepper and salt.
