Here's what Bethanie had to say about this recipe....

"Tried this Tuesday. It was really really good. I browned the hamburger with onion and green peppers and put it all in the crock pot. However I did learn that you cannot cook this too long. If you do it turns to mush. But, it was still good. Live and learn. Also, I used a box of mac-n-cheese and just before serving I mixed cheese powder with a little milk and poured over all. I would say a good cooking time is 2 hrs-maybe 3 hrs on low."
