REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating

I am always hesitant trying crockpot recipes that call for rice or pasta to be added uncooked for the duration of the recipe. However, this one turned out fantastic! The rice was nicely done and the meatballs were very tasty. I did only use half the taco seasoning called for, however, so it wouldn't be a sodium overload. I added a little hot sauce to the mixture to make up for it.
