Default Cooking From Scratch

A great crockpot recipe--really filling you don't need anything else. We have even had it for supper with a salad.

1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoons chili powder (I used taco seasoning)
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt (since tomatoes and beans usually have salt I would omit this)
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 15 oz. can light red kidney beans, drained
1 15 oz. can Mexican style stewed tomatoes
1 4 oz. can chopped green chilies
One 15 oz. can corn, drained (about a cup)
1 15 oz. can beef broth (if using box it's approximately 1cup)
1 bag tortilla chips
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
In large pan, brown beef and drain fat.
Add onions, red pepper, garlic, chili powder, oregano, salt and cayenne to meat in pan. Cook until onions and peppers are softened.
Place meat mixture in slow cooker.
Add kidney beans, tomatoes, green chilies, corn, and beef broth. Stir to combine.
Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 hours or LOW for 8 hours.
Garnish with tortilla chips and cheddar cheese before serving.
Serves 4-6 (very filling)
