A family favorite, given to me by a friend, quick and easy and delicious. You can add shredded cheese when the potatoes are tender and cook a few more minutes, and the stew is great with sour cream and salad.

I liked the ease of this recipe. The ingredients are so easy and something I always have in the pantry. It was very filling and made alot. Some cheese on top would be good but it was good without as well. Read More

This was ok and edible but I probably won't make again. I did change the recipe a little. I added onions in with the ground meat and cooked them together. I also added shredded cheese on the top of the potatoes the last 5 minutes of the cooking time. Read More

Very easy and filling. I had to substitute a can of dark kidney beans for the ranch style beans because I could not find anything like that locally. But we love kidney beans anyways. A dish of this and a glass of milk kept me full for hours and only one dirty skillet! Read More

I loved this. My grandpa used to make something like this when I was little without the beans and I think this might be even better or at least as good. I did add rings of onions to the meat and then corn towards the end and had to add some water too but it was still more like chili than soup which was fine by me. Will make again. Oh and I used red potatoes and it was still perfect. Read More

Very good flavor but too dry. I would definitely make this again but add some broth. Read More
