Easy Peesy 2nd edition

If you are a faithful reader of my blog(and honestly why wouldn't you be), then you may have read my last post about Easy Peesy recipes.  I thought I would come in with my 2nd installment of a yummy delicious home cooked meal that even novices can do.  This one is so easy that my 8 year old can make it.  If you can brown ground beef and open a can, then you can do this.  You will need:

1-1.5 lb ground beef
2 cans black beans
1 can of corn
1 can of diced tomatoes with chiles
1 can of regular diced tomatoes
1 packet of taco seasoning
1/2 packet of ranch
1 c diced onion(you can even buy frozen if you don't want to chop it)

Brown and drain the ground beef with the onion.  While that is working, open the can of corn and drain it.  Open all the other cans and empty the contents into the Crock Pot.  Pour in the taco seasoning and ranch mix.  When the meat is done, add it to the mix and stir.  Place the lid on and cook on medium to low for about 6 hours.  Garnish with shredded cheese and or sour cream and serve with tortilla chips.  This is hearty and good with lots of flavor.  Be prepared...your family will make it one of their favorites.

boiled shredded chicken in place of beef or even no meat for vegetarians.  Replace black beans with kidney beans.  Use fresh salsa for the diced tomatoes with chiles.

This is a great freezer meal so make double and keep for later.  This is also easy and yummy enough to take as a meal for someone who has had a baby or a death in the family.
