Recipe Notes

Most of my Crock Pot recipes fill the entire pot, but this one only makes about half a Crock Pot. If you want to fill a big Crock Pot you can double this.
*** Start with less salt and add more depending on the type of broth you use and how salty it is.

If you are sensitive to sodium or salt, pay attention to the sodium content on the broth you are buying a start with adding only half the salt and add to taste.
