    Pretty good, though could probably use some more spices. Followed the recipe as written, very easy to follow. One word of warning...if your crockpot holds moisture well do not add the water! I ended up dumping everything into a colander to drain the excess water off. With a newer crockpot that has the steam hole (or whatever it's called) that might not be an issue. I will make again, perhaps adding some Mrs Dash southwestern blend or something similar. And no water ;)

    It's kinda bland. Maybe more of the spices that it calls for.
