This classic recipe is simple and hearty, from “A Year of Slow Cooking” by Stephanie O’Dea (crockpot365.blogspot.com).
You will need:
2 cans of kidney beans
2 cans of pinto beans
2 cans of corn
1 large can of diced tomatoes
1 can tomatoes and chiles
1 packet taco seasoning (McCormick)
1 packet ranch dressing mix (Hidden Valley)
1 lb browned ground hamburger
Shredded cheese, sour cream
Brown meat; drain fat and add meat to crockpot. Sprinkle seasoning packets on top of meat. Drain and rinse the beans and add. Add the entire contents of the corn and tomato cans. Stir together.
Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-5. The longer you cook it, the better! Embellish (cheese, sour cream).
