    i made these for a family get together... My mom who is not a big eater, ate 3 of them. and asked for any left overs. I cooked the beef and then put everything in a crock pot on low for 3 hours. they really are so good.

    This is so tasty!!! I love it!!! The only thing i did different was that i used 2 pounds of hamburger meat instead of 3, otherwise i added same amount of the other ingredients & it is sooo delicious! Way better than the canned stuff at the store!!
