Super easy to make. Toss all ingredients in the pot (or slow cooker) and forget about it until dinner time. Healthy...and is good vegetarian with vegetable broth and no pork.

    This is a good, hearty recipe that is easy to make. Farily mild, so really good for kids. Feel free to experiment with different ingredients and spices.
