My husband and I were split on this review. He liked it better than I did. I found the meat to be a little dry. I did cook it on the faster 4-hour setting, and wonder if I would have had better results with the longer, slower setting. Also, I did not find this recipe to be very spicy. My husband (who is in the cooking industry) reminded me that most spices COOK OFF in a slow cooker. I'm afraid that the slow setting would completely wipe out the spices. This was labor-intensive to make. Lots of cutting and chopping. I like all of the ingredients very much, but I'm not sure it was worth the effort. I may try it again, but I wasn't entirely satisfied with this attempt unfortunately.
This was really different and the sweet potato topping is what really made the dish for me! It was spicy comfort food!
