A slow cooker is any busy family’s best friend in the kitchen. I especially like to use mine in the summer to keep the temperature in the kitchen nice and cool. The flavors and distinct look of this dish make it seem exotic and special. So easy to prepare in your slow-cooker that it makes a wonderful meal for a busy day. What I really love about this recipe is that it doesn’t call for a lot of “pre-cooking” food, like so many other slow cooker recipes do.
