“This is a modified slow-cooker recipe and could easily be made that way, as well. I'm calling it "kid-friendly" because all three of my kids (10, 10, and 8) gobbled it up and thought it was amazing. They even liked it the second time I made it, which any mom knows is the *real* test. It has a ton of flavor without being overly spicy, and they love adding shredded cheese, sour cream, avocado, and crushed tortilla chips to their own bowls.”
