"I've been making this recipe since it was published (a long time ago). It's very kid friendly and a good budget stretcher. I frequently put it in the crock pot when I need to make it ahead of time (cook 3-4 hours on low) or when I want something hot that the kids can help themselves to as they come in. Serve it over whole grain or whole wheat buns for added nutrition."
