My husband was pretty excited to eat the leftovers the next day; I thought it was zesty too. I did make some changes by using fresh green beans and plank cut some corn off the cob since they are so cheap and also left out the chopped tomatoes and adobo seasoning. I would make it again.

I received a crockpot as one of my Christmas presents and this recipe was the second one I tried with it. :) It is delish! DH absolutely loved it, which I loved because he normally doesn't like ANYTHING with veggies. Our only suggestion is to add a bit more spice, maybe red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper or tabasco. It was a bit sweet but overall wonderful. DH just took the leftovers to work... and he never takes leftovers. ;) Thanks so much for sharing.
