This recipe is one of those awesome slow-cooker recipes where you just throw in the ingredients and forget about it. In fact, I had forgotten to start dinner earlier and just decided to cook this on high. I had the whole dinner ready in under three hours. I opted to add avocado to my serving and later added sour cream. If you opt for this as well, use 1/8 of an avocado and 1 T. fat-free sour cream for an additional 1 point. I saw the original recipe on a site called "budgetbytes.com" and just slightly adapted it. I hope you like it.
