  1. Yum! Do you think this could be made in the slow cooker if you brown the meat first?

    1. I'm sure you could! I would cut back on the broth to about 1 cup, because recipes in the slow cooker don't need as much liquid. Let me know how it turns out!

  2. Thank you for posting this :) I know you posted it some time ago, but I just came back to it. I would love to try making this. I'm not crazy about corn so I may substitute something else. Thanks again, -- Melissa in Maumee
