This recipe is from the 2004 cookbook, "Fix-It and Forget-It Lightly". The ideal slow-cooker size for this recipe is 4 or 5 quarts. >>*Please note when using older recipes that crockpots used to cook at much lower temperatures than newer ones. If you bought a crockpot within the last ten years, it will cook hotter and need less cooking time.

This was easy to throw together and the ingredients matched well. It was a nice spicy quick one pot meal. Only thing is I don't think it really needed to be cooked on low for 8 hours, after a few hours the peppers were done and it was ready to have the rice added.
