Throw everything except the garnishes in your crock pot and let it cook on high for 5-6 hours.

Garnishes are listed under ingredients. Use what you like and give it a squeeze of lime.

If you don't have a crock pot Saute the garlic and onion in 2 tablespoons olive oil before adding the remaining ingredients.

Simmer for at least an hour so that the flavors mix together

I love easy recipes, this one can be made in the crock pot or in a dutch oven or large pot. Like most of my recipes this is so old I have no idea where it came from. This is another one that you can play with and change to your liking. It is very hard to mess up.
