Lately my life has become so busy that in order to give my children home cooked dinners everyday I have resorted to the crockpot alot! I can put it all together and let it go while I am focusing on one of the other 100 things my life is demanding at the moment lol. This is a recipe I found online and tweaked a bit to my liking. I added the jalapenos since my family loves the kick they add and the saffron. I also changed a few other ingredients to our taste. We loved this and I hope you all do too!
