  • Incredible!

    Substituted a large sweet potato for the butternut squash since my bf doesn't care for any kind of squash and doubled the amount of red pepper flakes (we like it hot). Used chicken broth, as it was all I had. Served over brown rice. Final verdict: DELICiOUS! - 7/6/09

  • Yummy! A great blend of exotic flavors. I loved it. The only thing is that it didn't make as many servings in the size you said it would--we ended up going with 3 1-cup servings, plus a little extra. Still, great recipe. Thanks for posting! - 1/30/12

  • Very good! I thought it was just a tad too spicy so will probably cut down on the red pepper flakes. - 12/8/11

  • I LOVED this the first time I made it. Unfortunately my kiddos didn't like it, but I think I just put in too many red pepper flakes for them. Got it cooking for a second time now with fewer pepper flakes & 4yo, who helped me make it, thinks it smells GREAT and can't wait for dinner tonight. :o) - 3/21/11

  • I just made this tonight and LOVED it. It was, without question, the best crockpot recipe I've ever tried. A wonderful medley of flavors. (I did add a small sweet potato because I wasn't sure I was using enough butternut squash) - 11/19/10

  • Delicious! I had some leftover butternut squash on hand, so I was able to cut way back on the cooking time. Also, I served it with a large dollop of plain yogurt and some chopped fresh mint, which really complemented it! Will make this again and often this winter! - 11/8/10

  • I made this adding a sweet potato and a regular potato to fill my crock pot. I thought it was delicious, but my family prefers more savory flavors, so I'm not sure I'll make it again. - 11/6/10
