I'm eating the leftovers of this as I write this. (It's even better the next day!!) I made several modifications, but it's a great base recipe to customize to your own liking. Here's what I did: -Cut the recipe by half so it wouldn't overflow my slow cooker -Used 1 can black, 1 can garbanzo, 1 can vegetarian baked beans -Omitted the tofu -Used garlic "powder" instead of cloves -Omitted oregano b/c I didn't have any -Added 6 oz of Shock Top beer -I was going to put in the veggies without sauteeing, but at the last minute I decided to sautee b/c I feel like it enhances the flavor With the baked beans and beer, mine has a slightly sweeter edge to it, which I personally love. Spicy and sweet! The author of this recipe is right, it really is "meaty" and SO EASY! It turned out looking almost identical to the pic. Inexperienced cooks, try this one without fear.
