"This is for Slow Sally who wanted to do this recipe in the crock pot. I did step one as directed. While that was going I rinsed the beans and put them in the crock pot with the broth and set to low. After this, I put the rest of the ingredients with the veggies that were still cooking just to get the flavors incorporated. I dumped all the cooked veggies into the crock pot and put the lid on. I then browned a pound of lean ground Jenny-O turkey to make more of a meal of the dish. I dumped that into the pot and let it go. I kept it on until dinner time. A few hours later. It was very good. Just a little too sweet for me. Next time I will use less honey. The tomato paste is probably sweet enough. The chili powder amount listed is not enough in my opinion. I like the idea of adding the red pepper flakes. Will do that next time. I added about 2 more teaspoons of red pepper and 1/2 teaspoon cumin. Hope that helps. I finished off with grilled sandwiches. Very healthy and hearty dish."
