  1. My family wasn't too keen on the idea of the frozen mixed vegetables in this. So, I grilled a couple ears of corn and cut the kernels off when it was done. I also diced up a fresh jalapeño pepper and sliced a couple of green onions. I just added them in place of the frozen mixed veggies. I used three cans of v8 that I had in the fridge. Wouldn't change a thing. Turned out fantastic!
