“Hatch Green Chile & Roasted Corn Salsa adds a spicy, southwestern twist to this hearty meal. This is my #1 requested Superbowl Crock pot dish. Tip: I prepare the meal the evening prior, add a timer to my outlet, and plug the crock pot into the timer, set the start time at 4 am. The meal is ready to be served by 6 pm.”
