*I added 1 can of fire-roasted tomatoes to the slow cooker and used Lawry's chipotle lime marinade instead of chipotle sauce. I also did not put lime juice in the rice and just added butter and cilantro once rice was cooked.

This is one tasty dish.  From the list of ingredients I was expecting it to be really spicy, but instead it has a very pleasant flavor. It's perfectly paired with the lime-flavored rice. More, please! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
