"This is quick, easy dish that my family enjoys. I love it, especially in the winter when it's cold outside and I want something heart warming and satisfying. Feel free to add other seasonings and adapt it to your liking. I sometimes add garlic and other herbs! If you like it spicy add in 2 cans Ro-Tel tomatoes. I have used the mild with great results. The sky is the limit with a recipe like this so experiment!"
