This was a pretty good recipe but the texture was a little "mushy" for my taste. I used ground chicken instead of sausage to lower the fat content. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. It was very easy to prepare and I'll probably make it again.

I thought this dish had a good flavor, but I agree with another reviewer, it was deffinatley mushy. I will try this again, but next time either keep my sausage in big chunks or maybe even use 2 pounds. Oh, I used regular sausage instead of hot, and it is very spicy! I think next time I will use the mild rotel instead of the original. Hope this helps!

I made this for an office birthday party. I added about 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper. Sereved the cheese and sour cream on the side. It was a huge success. Everyone asked for the recipe.

Easy to make. Tastes Great. Add salsa and sour cream to leftovers for an extra zip.

I've made this a couple of times now. It's fast easy and very tasty.

I found this to be very dry and when it said to cook 4 to 6 hours, even 4 hours it was burned on the bottom and sides. It was set on low so I was surprised.

This was absolutely delicious. I did use my own seasoned ground turkey to cut down on the spice and fat but even still, it was absolutely divine! Ps For those that find the recipe mushy you might need to drain your sausage longer or cook the dish on a higher setting for less than two hours. For the dryness...I found it is best to turn it on the lowest setting possible and cook no more than 3.5 hours. It really is about the temperment of your slow cooker.

I made this for a tailgate party and added some black beans. Everyone loved it! It was pretty spicy, and I would recommend a smaller slow cooker, maybe a 2 qt instead of a standard size.
