    Husband and I both loved this one. I sauted the pepper, garlic, onions, and chicken then put all the ingredients into a crock pot and cooked for 6 hours. I doubled the recipe and added extra chicken. Will definately make this one again. - 9/27/08

    I made this for lunch today and boy was it YUMMY! My 21 year old son loved it too! I omit green pepper, added jalepeno's chopped instead. I also reduced the sodium by using no salt vegetables and fresh corn & tomatoes. I used canned black beans(rinsed) I served with dollup of fat free sour cream. - 11/11/08

    We love this. I didn't saute anything, I put the onions, beans and corn into the crockpot, added garlic/onion/chili powder and some Pace Picante, then put the chik breasts on top. After it was done, I shredded the chicken and served over brown rice with cilantro (w/ bit of cheese and sour cream). - 9/24/09

    Love it! To add a little more zip use a jalapeno with green pepper, dry chili pepper, or a couple Tbs of your favorite salsa. I served with a dollup of fat free sour cream & a pinch of shredded cheese. yumm - 5/8/09

    Delicious and so easy to make. My kind of recipe! I did add 3 small jalapenos fresh out of the garden. I will be making this one again. This is also thick enough we will probably be using this in tortillas too. Served on rice for dinner and it was delicious. - 9/24/09

    this was good. fairly easy and quick too. i'll make it again, but i'll be doctering it up a little, not sure how - it seemed like it was missing something. we like spice in this house, so maybe that was it. good though - it will go into rotation for sure! - 11/16/08

    Used Pinto beans instead of black beans, but otherwise copied the recipe, and really enjoyed it, the cumin was an experiment for me as never tried in anything other than indian food. - 9/24/09
