This is my dad's recipe... it's so yummy.
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped green pepper
1 28 oz can whole tomatoes undrained
1 16oz can kidney beans undrained
1 can pork & beans (or a can of mixed beans - I use a "6 Bean Medley")
1/2 tbsp chili powder (or more if you like it spicy)
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 can tomatoe paste
Brown beef with onion and pepper.
add all ingredients to slow cooker, stir to blend.
Cook in slow cooker on medium heat.
I have a book called "Fix-it and Forget-it Cookbook" it has over 800 tried, tested, and true slow cooker recipes.
One of my faves:
Frances' Hearty Vegetable Soup
1 lb round steak, cut into 1/2 inche pieces
14 1/2 oz can diced tomatoes
3 cups water
2 potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 onions, sliced
3 celery ribs, sliced
2 carrots, sliced
3 beef bouillon cubes
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 1/2 cups frozen mixed vegetables or your choice of frozen vegetables
1. Combine first 3 ingredients in slow cooker.
2. Cover. Cook on High 6 hours.
3. Add remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on High 2 hours more, or until meat and vegetables are tenter.
(I also add a lb of ground beef... just put it in with the beef cubes.)
(I also add all the ingredients at the beginning as I only have about an hour at home before I eat and the potatoes and carrots do take more than two hours to cook).
Mmmmmm now I'm craving a nice hearty meal!
