    In this recipe, it states that a serving is one cup. However, in your recipes for Nachos and Chicken Tostada using this recipe, in the ingredients list it says one serving is 2 cups. - 8/5/09

    A serving size is 1 cup. Use 2 cups for the leftovers. It should have said 2 servings. Thanks for the catch!

    This was very easy & yummy. I did use black beans instead and added zuchinni. - 8/15/09

    I thought this was really good, I don't like bell peppers so I used onion instead, and I had a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes so I used that instead. I think this would be great with almost any kind of bean you happen to have on hand. - 9/13/09

    This sounds very good. However, boneless chicken breasts are expensive (and wasteful!) What changes should be made if I were to use chicken pieces with the bone in? - 9/8/09

    Reply from CHEF_MEG (9/16/09)
    If you use a whole chicken that's been cut into parts, just use one that's a comparable size. A two-pound chicken would be the largest I would recommend using in this recipe, otherwise you'll need to add more liquid (chicken broth is a good choice). And then save your bones for stock.

    Very good. I especially like the multi-use recipe. With the planned-over tostado meal the next night, I expect I'll be making double batches of this for freezing. Side note: bell pepper is not a favorite, so one was replaced with an onion. - 8/19/09

    Note: The Salt content is wrong. I added all the salt in this recipe and it came out to 670mg so with 6 servings it's 111.6 per serving. This is incredible! I added a little more basil and Italian seasoning and cooked on high for 31/2-4 hours. Will double this next time so I can make leftover recipe - 9/10/09

    I am not sure if I will make this again. I had read the comments last night and made it with zuccini from my garden, green pepper and onion. I also used fresh tomatoes and extra seasonings. It was just kind of ok. Nothing special. - 9/9/09

    i love crock pot meals. this one is delicious and guilt free. i might try the black beans next time. they would probably taste good on the left over nachos recipe. - 8/18/09

    I found out I really don't like canellini beans when I made this. Next time I'll try black beans and change the spices to chili powder and cumin. It is easy to make and a good dish for company. - 10/28/09

    I added some avacado and some fresh green onion for leftovers and used it all for an omelet for my husband and he loved it. It has a lot of flavor. Thanks, Chef Meg! - 9/29/09

    This was a pretty good recipe, although it was fairly bland. We added (faux) salt and black pepper to our dishes and that helped a bit. Also, it's not really substantial enough on its own, really needs something to accompany it, perhaps some brown rice would go well with this. - 9/23/09

    I don't know what this was really. Mine didn't look like Chef Meg's in the picture. I used fresh tomatoes but I don't know if that was the difference or not. By the time everything cooked down, it was a soupy consistency. Not what I had in mind but it was still okay and probably my fault anyway. - 9/11/09

    I suppose one could substitute almost any kind of beans (garbanzos, pinto, black, pink etc.) for the cannellini per family taste. - 9/9/09

    How ironic! I am cooking this in my slow cooker at this very minute! I put it on this morning before I left for work. I used a whole chicken, though, because I had one I wanted to get out of my freezer. It already smelled yummy before I left the house! - 9/9/09

    Enjoyed this very much. I halved the recipe. I used only 1/4 t. dried thyme (for half the recipe instead of 1/2 tsp.) . I also cut up pieces of chicken breast, boneless and skinless. Used 1 whole red pepper and omitted the yellow. Added a little V8 juice. Served over whole wheat pasta. - 9/25/09

    This turned out OK and tasted OK (not great-but good), but I did not end up with 6 one cup servings....I ended up with barely 4 one cup servings and have no idea what I did wrong - I followed directions and did not use any substitutions. - 9/15/09

    This was so easy to put together and really delicious. I served it over couscous. While light, it was very filling and one serving over a little couscous was enough to fill me up. - 9/30/09
