Nice Spicy and easy slow cooker recipe. Great for diabetics who can't have white rice.

I like the idea of barley and beans but didn't really care for this dish. The bay leaf was overwhelming but otherwise it seemed lacking in flavour. I served it with salsa to add a bit more flavour.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toss it in the crock pot all day. Cook 4 -5 on high and then drop it down another 4 at least on low.
  2. Take out the bay leaves and the chile peppers. It’s better a day or two later.
