I really enjoyed this and will almost certainly make it again. My son said there was too much cinnamon, but he did eat, and I disagree. Since the recipe is "non-traditional" anyway, I used dried chopped figs that I have been attempting to use up. Worked just fine. If I ever finally run out of them I will try the fruits used here, or (more traditional) raisins. I did not serve this with almonds, but I did use the green olives. In fact, I think I might like even more green olives next time. My crockpot might run hot (most newer ones do) because this was starting to burn a bit when we checked it at about 2 hours 45 minutes.
Great food, easily made. I used a red bell pepper as well as a green; added some roasted Hatch chilies I'd frozen from last summer; substituted currants for the dates/apricots. Served it on tortillas with chopped lettuce and cilantro. Will freeze some to see how it holds up. In-laws all loved it. Thanks, Jan
