It doesn’t get easier then this! It honestly took me less than 2 minutes this morning to throw the ingredients into the crock pot, turn the switch on low and dinner was ready for us when we got home! Not only is this a nutritious meal, but it is incredibly “budget friendly” weighing in at under $0.50 per serving! You can’t argue that it’s expensive to eat healthy now!
