Made this with a few different ingredients and it was delicious. Not a fan of beans in our house so changed it to a jar of salsa, also had green cap in fridge so added that to slowcooker. It was really good and will do it again. Yum.

Had this tonight – easy dish to make and quite tasty, but next time I would add more taco seasoning for a little more of a hit.

Tried this tonight, it was a bit dry ( could have been my slow cooker) flavour was great. All of the family would like veg mixed through the mince so I will put some in next time

So easy and so tasty. I halved everything and used chicken mince. Yummy. Would make a great pie filler 😊

You could and they would cook to soft a little faster than regular potatoes. I’d drop an hour or so off time 🙂

Could I use sweet potatoes instead and would that change the cooking time? Thanks

They give a depth of flavour to this dish and a creamy consistency that really makes it 🙂 You won’t taste them individually in the final dish. Why not give it a go 🙂

I don’t like refried beans, what can I add instead?
