Quite good with some modifications, mostly because of what I had on hand. Ingredient changes were: 1.5# sliced ham, fresh mushrooms, a slightly larger can of green chilies, 3 carrots, 2T Italian Herb seasoning (in place of fresh rosemary, parsley & thyme), 1t Old Bay w/ Blackened Seasoning (in place of Creole), 1T Morton Nature's Seasons blend (in place of white pepper, black pepper, and salt), port instead of dry red wine & omitted black beans, corn, brown sugar & cayenne. In Step 1, I sauteed leek and garlic with the ham to develop more flavor. I'm guessing the 'water to cover' for me was ~2C. The house smelled great while the slow cooker did its magic. The end result was a hearty & savory dish that has some zing (from the artichokes and chilies, I guess) so its neither sweet nor too spicy. Great for winter lunches and suppers!
