Slow Cooker Thursday
A staple around here ... I always have the ingredients for this on hand during the Fall/Winter.
1 lb. ground beef (I usually use ground turkey)
1 lg. Onion chopped
1 can refried beans
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 can chili beef soup
1 can cheddar cheese soup
2 cans Rotel tomatoes
Brown ground meat and onion. Add soups, refried beans and tomatoes. Simmer for 1 hour. This is best cooked in a slow cooker as it is easy to scorch. You may adjust the soup to your liking, adding only 1 can of tomatoes if you like it spicy or just 1 can or Rotel tomatoes if you like it mild. You may need to add a little water if it becomes to thick.
This recipe can easily be made vegetarian by substituting veggie meat for the beef, and vegetarian refried beans and chili. Serve with tortilla chips, fritos, sprinkle cheese over it, etc.
