If you’ve been looking for a new slow cooker meal, here is a very simple & easy recipe to just throw in the slow cooker.  I love meals like this because they are so hearty & filling and you can get it all ready to go the night before to just put together in the crock-pot in the morning and have a healthy, hearty meal by the time you’re ready for dinner.
