  • I used Sir Hamilton, my Hamilton Beach Programmable Insulated Slow Cooker. You can use your favorite 6-quart slow cooker. 
  • I know that we usually leave the lid off for party mixes, but this one calls for a little on, little off. It is okay. It'll work! 
  • As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
  • All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
