i lost this recipe, i had printed it and dh tossed it in the trash. we loved it and i was upset could i could not re-find it. it is super and easy and delicious. i made it in the crock pot, did not use the red pepper, personal issues with bell peppers, but used a can of ro-tel HOT instead of the jalapeno and the bell pepper. great recipe. it is now in at least 5 of my cooksbooks.

this is a favorite in our house. We add Portuguese sausage slices. I made it once when I only had a few things in the house and didn't want to go to the store, hoping it would be OK, but it surpassed my expectations. I send people here for this recipe all the time. It's just that good!

can i just say how much i love this recipe? it is deceptively simple, easy to make, using ingredients i have on hand, and packs SO much flavor! husband requested it yet again this week. we enjoy for dinner one night & pack it for lunches the rest of the week. with some sliced avocado & tortilla chips, it makes a very satisfying lunch.
