I made this on 8/11/08 for the " Crockpot Cooking Challenge 2008" in the Cooking Photo Forum. And I'm pleased to be the first one to make and review this recipe. I did however have to make a few changes due to what was on hand. Instead of the store bought soup mix, Recipe#186221 was used.I didn't have canned diced tomatoes so, a 10 ounce can of mild ro-tel tomatoes were used,and a small fresh tomato was diced and added to make up the weight difference.Also, only used 1 can of green chilies,since that was what I had.Before placing the meat in the crockpot, I browned it slightly to give the meat a little color. My SO really enjoyed the taste and texture. But being the whimp that I am, it was just too much on the spicy side for me. If he wants this again, I'll add some sour cream to my serving to "tone down the bite" abit.Thanks for posting, and "Keep Smiling :)"
