About this recipe: Spicy cumin, chicken, salsa, black beans and sweet potatoes combine into a flavourful stew. Chicken thighs have so much more flavour and cook beautifully in a slow cooker.
Black turtle beans, or simply 'black beans' for short, are especially common in Latin American cuisine. High in fibre and packed with nutrients, they're a healthy addition to any dish. If you can't find tinned black beans, use dried, or try using tinned pinto beans instead.
This recipe is so delicious, I cook the sweet potato for about 10 minutes before I add it otherwise it can be a bit crunchy. I have made this recipe loads of times and prefer to use M & S salsa to give it a smokey / chipotle flavour. - 14 May 2012
Very nice, I altered the recipe slightly as I didn't have all the ingredients, I substituted the beans for sweetcorn and I didn't have any salsa sauce so I made my own by adding a tin of chopped tomatoes with a squirt of tomato puree and a sprinkling of oregano, mild chili powder, cayenne and paprika and reducing the amount of stock to around 100 ml. - 05 Sep 2011
absolutely delicious. I have been with my husband for 8 years and he said this is the best thing that i have ever cooked him. I hope that this means this is really really amazing and not that my cooking skills are poor! - 18 Jan 2010
