    Scrumptious! I used La Victoria cilantro salsa, med. hot; I added more cumin & oregano than called for, plus lemon pepper & bay leaves. I used my own broth from boiling a whole chicken recently. Will definitely get more than 4 servings from this batch, so I'm counting 0.75 each when tracking. - 3/2/09

    I made this last night and took some with me to work today for lunch. It is really good and easy to make. I'll definitely make it again. Nice twist with the sweet potato. - 1/6/09

    Excellent! I left out the corn, just because I only like corn on the cob. Subsituted with snap beans instead. Thanks for a great combination! - 1/1/09

    Very tasty! I subbed frozen mixed veggies in place of the frozen corn just because I had it on hand. Otherwise prepared as directed. For me it turned out thin as for soup, so that's how we ate it. I could have added thickener or put on stove top to reduce down to more of a stew, but still yummy - 11/11/08

    This is outstanding. We like sweet potatoes anyway...I added a lot of other veggies to this and i'm going to change the seasonings next time to see what other flavor nuances I can bring out. - 11/4/08

    This was okay as a stand-alone stew, but I loved it with a side of multigrain French bread. - 5/13/09

    Awesome and so easy! Instead of corn, I used freshly chopped zucchini, yellow squash and green beans to sneak in more veggies. - 4/4/09

    Wow this is good. I browned the diced sweet potatoes and onions in a TB of olive oil before adding the other ingredients and added pineapple salsa instead of regular which I had on hand. I figured that sweet potatoes were good with pineapple so it must be good. It is! - 11/4/08

    substituted low sodium or salt free chicken broth and increased cumin and oregano. Yummy and not mushy in the crock pot on low setting but also cooks fairly quickly on top of the stove as well! - 11/4/08
