    It says baking potatoes, didn't mention chopping them. it looks chopped up in pic, but then why ask for baking potatoe of they are going to get chopped up.... What am I missing?

    Sounds lovely, could I do it on low for say for 8 hours so I could bung it on before eork and would be ready when I got home ??

    Absolutely gorgeous. I didn't have olives but a large chunk of chorizo so chopped it up and added that instead. Gave a lovely smoky flavour to the dish.

    I made this without the chilli or olives, and I added four chopped rashers of smoked bacon, absolutely delicious!

    This looks nice and warming, just right for a cold day.

    I made this recipe last night - delicious, easy, possibly a bit spicy for the kids but I'll tone down the spice and let them try it soon. Will become a standard dish here - thank you!

    i might add chicken breasts chopped up as my dh wont eat veggie either. or serve it as an side dish with other meaty things!

    It sounds delicious but my DH won't entertain the idea of having something vegetarian :( Do you think adding chorizo or something would work?

    I made this without the peppers (as they can go a bit bitter in the slow cooker) and with half the paprika and chilly and it was still *plenty* spicy and quite delicious.
