READY IN: 6hrs 15mins
Recipe by Dancer

I made this yesterday for the first time and I will be making again. I replaced the tomato soup with a can of hunts tomato sauce and I sprinkle in some basil.

This was plain and simple... a little bland for us, but that could be easily adjusted. I think this is something children would enjoy -- a family-style meat & potatoes dish. I made exactly as written. If I were to make this again, I would add some garlic to the meat while it was browning, and make a bell pepper or jalapeno for a little zing.
