I needed something to serve to a large group immediately following church and came up with this. I left it in the crock pot on low so it would stay warm and be ready to go when we got home. It was a huge success and is now a main staple in our household. We prepare many dishes using this as the base (baked tacos, deep fried tacos, enchiladas, chili, casseroles, etc.).
