    Oh this looks delicious and definitely like a comfort food. We are finally having colder temperatures here and have cooked soup and next is chili. Thanks for sharing this. I will add this one to my menu.

    Sounds pretty good and not to hard to make.

    Adding! This freezes well. I made a HUGE pot of this last month and divided it into family portions to rewarm on frazzled days and it’s good. I try to keep meals in the freezer that I’ve made instead of purchasing convenience foods or fast foods.
