    Lexuslady's Note:

    This recipe has been in our family for years. Anyone who I have made this for raves about it. Put the ingredients together, throw it all in one pan and in four hours it is done and tastes great! It has a bit of a kick to it. It is great for football games, parties and just for you. Enjoy.

      I cooked it in the crockpot overnight and it was amazing. This is such an easy recipe to make.

      Everyone in my family enjoys this one. I make it as directed except I use pepperoncini pepper rings so I don't have to deal with the stems.
