  1. I’m prediabetic, so am really watching my sugar. I subbed in 1-8oz can tomato sauce for 1 c. Of the ketchup, and cut all of the other sugars in 1/2. It still tastes and smells amazing! Can’t wait for it to come out of the crockpot tonight!

  2. Amazing flavor!!! Made this tonight in tacos and was absolutely delicious This is definitely a keeper for our family. Thank you for sharing.
