This recipe made an excellent entrée. The salsa and peanut butter add a spicy, but pleasing, flavor. I made the dish as directed with one exception. I used hot spiced peanuts (all I had), but it turned out so well that I may always use them. They gave just an extra kick to the dish that we found delightful. We truly enjoyed this meal, and I will definately be making it again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

It was okay, but not really worth making again. Maybe I would make it again if I had all of the ingredients at home and needed an easy meal to throw in the crockpot but I just didn't like it enough to go out and buy ingredients to make it. There wasn't anything wrong with it, I just didn't think it was that great.

This is a fantastic recipe.. so easy and so quick. I substitued Tahininfor the peanut butter (the second time I made it), tasted as good if not the same!
