“This is a thick and hearty meal for those who enjoy delicious simplicity. On cold winter days it'll warm both heart and soul as well as your stomach! This is also easily thrown together in the morning and will cook all day in the slow-cooker while you are at work, so that you can have a tasty supper all ready for you when you get home. Serve with cornbread for an excellent combination of flavor. This meal tastes even better reheated the next day!”
