    This is easily converted to the crock pot by putting it all in and simmering all day then shredding the chicken before serving. I also soaked dried beans overnight and tossed in freshly cubed potatoes instead of canned. I tripled the recipe (we have a 14-yo boy) and added some Italian seasoning. - 8/8/09

    Wow, that is a LOT of sodium per serving! Substitute "no-salt added" tomato products, and thoroughly rinse the canned goods to help with that. - 8/8/09

    This would be great for in the Crock Pot with dried beans. Soak beans, then add all other ingredients, turn on low and cook for hours. Sounds Great. Thanks. - 8/8/09
