This recipe is a little more time consuming but it makes a lot so it’s worth it. Also, its delicious!!! For all my Whole Life Challenge buddies at Crossfit High Voltage, please try it out and send me pictures!!! This taste like the real deal and is comfort food at its finest. I know my crossfit coach Tyler is going to somehow try to use his crock pot for this ( aka rice cooker).
