    Delicious! I made this last night and used 1/2 cup of wild rice mix and veggie broth and it was wonderful, full of flavor, and the rice looked like ground beef so it felt like a sinful dish. Thank you so much!! I loved your presentation on freezer crockpot meals. I could watch you meal prep all day. Nice to have healthy crockpot recipes for me AND my husband. I appreciate this so much.

    How can we print the recipe cards out again?

    This was very delicious. I had the ingredients on my pantry shelf ( I hadn’t gotten around to putting the entire thing together in the freezer yet) , and the peppers and corn just in the fridge and freezer, and was able to put it together quickly and just cook it on the stove top.

    Made this today. This was a winner for all. I served mine with saltine crackers and cheddar cheese. Some requested extra seasoning. A sprinkle of Tony’s Creole Seasoning was all that was needed. Winner! On rotation.

    Are you cooking this frozen? I don’t see anything about thawing, so I wanted to double check. Thanks.
