This is something that I threw together and never really measured. My daughter sat with me one time when I made it and wrote everything down so that I could share it. It makes a big batch and freezes well for future quick meals. I have found that this is just a basic recipe that adapts well to anyone's taste. This is also a great recipe for a large crockpot.
