Between spring sports – track and baseball, spring productions for my daughter who is in theater to the end of school it is rare we have a night without something already planned for us.

Notes

This slow cooker meal is a true dump and go meal. The words dump and go literally means dump in slow cooker and go and come home to a scrumptious meal. 
You can mix all wet ingredients in a bowl together if desire, however there is no need. Just dump ingredients in and go
