Awesome! This recipe is a keeper. The first time I made this for my DH and kids. They loved it. Makes a huge amount. I made this the next time for a small birthday gathering/dinner because it was a "one pot" meal and enough to go around. Everyone absolutely loved this. My father had 3 bowls! I served biscuits or hot croissants on the side each time. Easy to make and delicious. Thanks for a great recipe.
