    Very Good

    This was very easy to make, but I tweaked it a bit. I eliminated the jalapeno and added some cooked carrot shreds (they come pre-shredded for topping salads, etc.). It was very good. A healthy and filling comfort food on a cold New England night. - 2/9/09

    This sounds very good, but what is the serving size?There aren't too many SparkRecipe's that include the serving size. Why? How is anyone watching their weight is suppose to add the calories to their daily allotment? - 2/1/09

    I made this by just dumping everything in a crock pot in the morning (I threw in a can of tomatoes, drained, too), and I had a great one dish meal waiting when I got home. - 2/10/09
