This recipe, submitted by Charlotte Martin in Baltimore, Maryland has a lot to love. It’s delicious, made with good-for-you ingredients, and provides a generous portion that clocks in under 400 calories. Plus, the slow cooker does most of the work for you! My taste testers gave it two thumbs up and all agreed that there’s nothing to “wine” about here.
