    kcdelong's Note:

    This is a recipe that will knock your socks off! Needs to be refrigerate overnight. It's a good change from bacon or sausage for breakfast or brunch. It is also good served rolled in warmed flour tortillas for lunch or dinner.

      This is so good! I made this for a burrito filling. Everyone liked it very much. I like how simple and easy this recipe is. The next day I put it all into the crockpot and set it to warm. We had a nice dinner waiting for us. I think leaving it overnight really lets the flavors come together. I didn't measure the diced tomatoes, but just used the whole can. Made and Reviewed for Zaar Tag - Thanks! :)
