Busy Mom's Stew
From the kitchen of Annette Beard
This is an easy recipe, put all ingredients in crock pot in the morning and come home to a fresh, hot soup.
(When my children were young, I browned 10 pounds of ground beef, drained it and then stored it in 2-pound portions in the freezer to use in various recipes throughout the week.)
2 lb. ground beef
1 onion, chopped
2 cans ranch style beans
2 cans minestrone soup
1 large can chopped tomato
2 cans diced Rotel
Brown meat and onions. Drain.
Add all ingredients (do not drain).
Cook in crock pot about two hours. (May alternate Rotel and/or tomatoes, depending on personal preference.)
Serve with cornbread or garlic bread.
