      I hope you are not stating to prepare everything the night before and leaving it in the crockpot overnight (at room temperature).

      of course not! 🙂 you never leave raw meat sitting out! the prep that was being suggested to do the night before is mixing up the beans, corn, tomatoes, broth & spices the night before, cover & refrigerate until ready to use the next morning.

      This sounds like a really good hearty, but healthy meal for this cold weather.
      Gonna pencil this in for an upcoming menu.
      Thanks for sharing!!
