This is really simple and very good. I've learned to use some simple tweaks to make preparation a little easier. I use the frozen chopped onion in place of a fresh onion and it works just fine. My family loves this and we rarely have leftovers, much to my disappointment, but they know it's Fall when Mom brings out the Crock Pot to make this.
