Now you definitely need a crock pot for this recipe. I have two favorite crock pots.
I love my Ninja cooking system. It is pretty awesome because you can brown your ground beef or whatever meat you are cooking in the pot and then let is slow cook all day.
That means one more less pan to cook for most recipes. This has become my new favorite crock pot just because of that one feature!
I am all about making things easier around here and having less dishes to clean up! You can make this in the instant pot if you prefer.
I also love this programmable 6 quart crock pot. It is awesome and very nice on the budget.
I love that it will seal closed so you can transport it for parties and tailgates. This is such an awesome feature if you take your crock pot places.
Another time saving tip is to use Crockpot liners. They make clean up a breeze.
Instead of scrubbing and washing the pot, you can just toss the liner. It is practically no clean up.
More ideas to try:
This is optional but diced onions are really tasty in this dish and give it even more delicious flavor. We keep diced onion and bell pepper in the freezer so it is easy to add to any recipe we like.
Just grab from the freezer and toss a few into the crock pot. So easy!
Another time saving tip is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop the onions.
If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver and you can get the veggies really fine if you have children that are picky.
I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes.
