  3. How did I miss this one?! AND why didn’t I think of it? So simple and love the whole concept of putting everything in a crock pot. My family gets together every Saturday for Bible study and this would be perfect this Fall and Winter.

  4. How many servings does this make? I’d like to try it for a Christmas party and wondering if I need to double the recipe!


    1. This makes 10-12 servings, but you’re not going to be abe to double it in one slow cooker. Too much liquid. You will just need to run two separate slow cookers.
