Putting together a meal in a crock pot doesn't get any easier then this. A hearty meal that is low in calories and low in sodium, takes all day to cook without you even being there. This is a dish with wonderful flavors & aroma. Average sodium in a can or restaurant is 600mg on up. Once again we've taken the salt out and put flavor in so at 132mg you can enjoy without the guilt...
