This is a great family meal. I would have given a 4 start rating but CL uses the description "worthy of a special occasion" and I wouldn't quite go that far. The flavour can change easily with different salsas so it can be a different meal every time you make it. The only small complaint I have, and maybe its just my slow cooker, but as hot as the meal is when ready and no matter how small I cut my potatoes, they(the potatoes) always seem a little undercooked. Maybe I should just try a very small dice or precook a few minutes on the stove before placing in the slow cooker.

Good Sunday night dish with lots leftover for the week. Instead of parsley I added cilantro and at the end I did add a teaspoon of salt.

This was a great meal for our family and very fast for me to make. I had all the ingredients on hand except a few. For the missing ingredients, I just used what I had in the freezer: frozen mixed veggies, red potatoes and marinated southwest chicken. It turned out great. It was very flavorful and I'll be making this one again at the request of the family.

This is a favorite -- while maybe not worthy of a "special occasion". Love to make this Sunday night and have leftovers. I substitute hash browns for the diced potatoes to make it even easier. My family likes things spicy so I use a large jar of "hot" salsa.

This was a very good recipe. I cubed and browned the chicken instead of shredding it, but made no other changes. Very simple and hearty.

I have made this stew probably about 5 times. I substitute white potatoes with sweet potatoes. Not only does it taste good, but it is healthy and hardy and overall lower in calories per serving.
