YIELD: 8 SERVINGS
And this is probably my favorite slow cooker recipe of all time: I make it at least monthly once the weather turns cold. Since it makes enough to serve eight people, you’re sure to have plenty of leftovers to help stock up your freezer (unless you have dinner guests or a big family).
It’s pure comfort food, through and through.

pepper in a large resealable plastic bag.
