Recipe by Southern Lady

A good one for busy women to throw together before work & the blending of flavors is from being refrigerated. Hearty - serve with a vegie and salad. I'm going to test using my crockpot and will post results later. Recipe originally (I've made a few changes& shown as optional) from Johnie Mae Barber of Oklahoma and is over 50 years old, considered her family's all time favorite.
