"I just read the review from "crankysad", and she said she cooks it all in one pot, I was wondering how she did, how long and what she did exactly, would love to make this but can`t afford to go wrong."

"I got this gift recipe in a Jar for Christmas. We love it. We cook it as a one pot meal (takes 25 minutes and feeds the family) and we use italian sausage instead but it is great. Super quick and very tasty. When I run out of mix, I quickly make another batch. It's turning into a "Go To" staple for dinner. **If feeding kids, leave out cayenne and play with it. My kids can't handle spicy foods.**"
