As far as Chourico and Peppers recipes go this is great! Being part portuguese it's almost a staple at any family function. I gave it 4 stars only because I find green peppers to be VERY overwhelming in this recipe. I made it with red peppers and it was perfect!

I used a Shiraz because I heard that when adding wine to a recipe, you should only use wine that you would drink. I also substituted the green peppers for red peppers. I found this dish made the house smell amazing, however taste wise, it was too sweet and I thought all that cooking time was not needed.

Chourico and peppers is one of my favorites. This is a great way to prepare it......super easy. This is a great dish to bring to a party with some rolls.Chourico comes in hot and mild. Hot is just a little too spicy for me!

Great tasting recipe and so easy when cooked in the crockpot!

I have not made this...YET - so I'll give it four stars and update later. For the person who thought they might not have used the right sausage, here is a tip: Spanish Chorizo is fully cooked, and is in a casing similar to polish sausage. It slices/dices and can be added to anything, like cornmeal muffin batter with cheddar cheese. Mexican Chorizo is RAW, and crumbles when cooked. Excellent with scrambled eggs for breakfast burritos. I look forward to trying this.

So easy, great on pop rolls or any crusty bread. I agree with a previous reviewer that using red peppers seems to taste better than green. Great traditional flavor.

Easy to make. I served it on top of Basmati rice and it was a huge hit. There was a lot of oil from the sausage but I drained it well before serving. Suggest adding seasoning of choice like smoked paprika or Chipotle.
