“From "Best Recipes All New Slow Cooker", this flavorful and economical recipe is very quick to throw in the crock pot. It is great wrapped in tortillas or served on top of rice (My kids enjoy it both ways!). I double the recipe but not the spices. Note: 11/8/06 I added about 3 tbs. (plus the juice) of crushed pineapple and it was a very good variation!”

  1. Combine Chili powder, oregano, and cumin in small bowl and set aside.
  2. Layer sweet potato, beans, half of chili powder mix, garlic, onion, jalapeno pepper, green pepper, remaining half of chili powder mix and corn in slow cooker.
