5Cover and ignore for 2-4 hours.
USING A CROCK POT: Dish can be set to cook all day if you are a career mommy/daddy with a day job.
6Turn off heat, let cool a few minutes before serving.
7+ Yellow Bell Pepper may be substituted for Green Bell Pepper if there is a sensative stomach coming to dinner. For added mildness, remove the inner membrane before adding to the dish.
8* For thicker sauce, increase this amount. Be sure to taste and adjust the rest of the seasonings to avoid any corn taste coming through.
