Sounds like a delicious meal... and I love crock-pot/slow cooker meals.

Do you have a nutritional breakdown for servings? Or can you direct me to the nutritional information?

Thank you!

Sorry, Tricia - I have NO idea where I got this recipe and don't have the nutritional breakdown. I tend to look at fat, calories, sodium amounts, and if it fits in my "mental scale" it's a good recipe. You could plug the ingredients into fitday.com and see what it comes up with.
