    I am new to paleo and have not had much luck finding good recipes but this one is really good. My whole family really enjoyed it. It’s easy to make and very filling. I love how the sweetness of the potato pairs with the spicy seasonings.

      Hi Ana,

      We didn’t use any when we tested this, but be sure not to drain the canned tomatoes! You’ll get some liquid from the cans. If your slow cooker is especially hot (the heats can vary depending on how old yours is or the make/model), you could add a bit of broth or water to account for that. We didn’t need any extra when we tested though.
