      This is indeed a simple recipe that you probably have the ingredients for. Made as directed but after browning the meat put cooked beans, and meat and seasoning in crockpot on low for 1 hr (had to go to the office for a bit before dinner) Worked fine. Was injoyed by all. It looks like chili, but the clove comes through and gives it a different flavor. Made for ZWT 5
