    Can you do this in the crockpot ( slow cooker)?
    How long? And would you still sauté carrots/peppers/onions or no?

      Yes, you can make this recipe in a crock-pot. You would not need to saute the carrots, peppers and onions but I would suggest you place them in the crock-pot first and then add the beans, chicken, corn and liquids. Cook in crock-pot for 4-6 hours on low or 2-3 on high.

    What is Rotel??

    • October 23 at 07:22PM

      Rotel is the brand name of a tomato and pepper blend that is canned. There are store brand versions that are equally as tasty. You can usually find it next to salsa in stores (or with canned tomatoes).
