I have been making this for years. I came across it under the meatless meals section of my "Secrets of Slow Cooking" cookbook. My meat loving husband would fall on the floor if I attempted to serve this meatless, so I added 1 pound of mild sausages and the juice of 1/2 a lime. Would you believe he has actually invited his buddies over to taste it....that's how much he likes it. My preferred hot sauce with this is Chipotle. Don't be thrown off by the cinnamon, it compliments the dish well. I have made it both with and without the Caribbean or Jerk seasoning and it tastes great!***Update***I made this last night with a whole pork tenderloin, WOW, I didn't think this could get better. Love it!
