  • 10 leaves lettuce
  • 10 slices tomato

    Cover; cook on Low heat setting 8 to 10 hours.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For a party, place the rolls in a basket and arrange the toppings on a large platter so guests can top their sandwiches as they like.
  • tip 2
    Don't have the Mexican-style tomatoes? Use a 14.5-ounce can of plain diced tomatoes and a 4.5-ounce can of Old El Paso® chopped green chiles instead.
