This is a complete meal in a Crockpot. Simple and everything can be purchased at Aldi's Food Store. I use a West Bend 6 Quart Oval Crockery Cooker. I have several crock pots for different items since I find them handy for picnic's or family meals. I always have left overs which I use in sandwiches or spaghetti. You can use the meat for any recipe that calls for cooked beef/ground turkey.
