Notes

  • We used our casserole crock pot for this recipe and it filled it ALL the way up to the tippy top! If you do not use a casserole crock, you will definitely want to use a 6-quart slow cooker.
  • If you don't like using cream soups from the can, here is our homemade alternative.
  • 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.
