I took this GREAT recipe and created a Southwestern version: I had some leftover boiled red potatoes, so I chopped them up, added fresh corn cut off the cob, added sliced carrots, used chicken broth instead of beef; added 3 cloves minced garlic, 1 can of green chilis and instead of Italian sseasoning, seasoned with about 2 tsp. ground cumin and 1 Tblsp. chili powder, plus squeezed in juice of one Key lime (bottled juice would work if you can't grow them)and a few shakes of hot sauce to taste. Cooked on low in Crock Pot for almost 11 hours (just because we got home late), and then added a mixture of about 1/4 c. corn starch to 1/2 c. water to the crock pot and let it thicken to gravy consistency. We all loved this! If I weren't trying to lose weight, I would top with sour cream! I would also consider skipping potatoes and serving over rice for another version, but as hubby said, "This is a Make-Again!" Thanks for the inspiration, Mitzy!
