1/4 cup red wine
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons olive oil

1) In a slow cooker, combine the chouriço, green pepper, onion, olive oil, wine, water, crushed garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir so that everything is evenly distributed. Cover, and set on Low.
2) Cook for 8 hours.

I grew up on this in SE Mass. except with no slow cookers we made it in a heavy pan on tye stove. Crust Portuguese bread sopped up the sauce and was a meal in itself.
