Use your slow cooker to make mealtime come together fast. You can brown the meat first (in a large skillet over medium-high heat), or combine the raw meat with the other ingredients and let the slow cooker do all the work.
Combine all of the ingredients except for the sides and toppings in a medium to large slow cooker and mix well. Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 hours or on LOW for 6 hours. Serve with the sides and toppings in bowls on the side.
Make Ahead Tips
You can save even more time by combining all the ingredients in the slow cooker insert up to 2 days ahead and storing it in the refrigerator.
