Made this as is. A good recipie with just a little kick. Nothing spectacular to note but I will be making it again.

Spruced this a bit... Added 1tsp worchestshire sauce + a pinch of dill and pinch of parsley and added some salt , pepper and cilantro instead of crushed red pepper. Substituted skim milk for the half and half and used a regular jar of sauce.... Cooked on low in the crockpot for about 7 hours, stirring after every hour. Was great for Thanksgiving leftovers (turkey was cubed instead of thighs). Would make again!
