One of our favorite slow cooker recipes! I doubled the recipe for a larger slow cooker (and so we had lots of leftovers). It's such an easy recipe, and nice that just varying the type of salsa used will vary the taste. Thanks for sharing!!

The title of this recipe describes it perfectly. I made as directed and added a mixture of flour/water for the last hour or so to thicken it a little bit. The meat was very tender and it made good gravy to put over rice. I served with green beans. Next time, I will cut the sugar in 1/2 or 3/4. Thanks for an easy recipe with stuff on hand.

This was okay, but I made it in a 5 quart slow cooker not realizing that it is a recipe for a smaller slow cooker. After seven hours it was a bit over cooked. Next time I will double the recipe and see how it turns out.
