I posted this recipe before. It is too good not to post again. I've tweaked the measurements more too. We add more veggies now.
I make this a lot. It's one of the easiest things to throw in the crockpot.
Best part is that it is super filling and very low calorie. You can seriously eat a lot of this stuff and not feel guilty at all.
This makes a really big batch but it stays in the frig very well and reheats to make an awesome lunch the next day!
