This is a great one dish meal combining ground beef with tomatoes, onion, beans, corn, and taco seasoning. Quite simple to make, and delicious, too.

This is really good with the addition of black beans and kidney beans. It is also a good one to make in the crock pot on low for 8 hours. Read More

I used ground turkey and homemade taco seasoning in this recipe. After I browned the meat I was able to throw all the ingredients in my West Bend Slow Cooker in the morning and let it go until lunch which I appreciated. Simple and cheap not bad for a quick lunch. Read More

When I had my husband taste this he said it tasted like chili with a southwest kick. I subbed chopped pre-cooked meatballs for the ground beef (woohoo! the last of my big bag-o-meatballs!) and vegetarian baked beans plus salsa and Frank's red hot in place of the ranch beans. Read More

Very good as a base (which is why I didn't give it 5 stars). What's great about this is it allows you to add some of your favorite flavors. I usually add about 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce when I'm browning the meat and onions. Also as I'm browning the meat I mix the other ingredients and let simmer really mixes those flavors well before adding the meat. A few other changes I made are only 1 can of beans (I don't like beans) and added a can of condensed Tomato soup about 1/4 cup mild taco sauce and 1 tablespoon hot sauce (just enough to give a slight heat). But with this base you can be very creative and make it slightly different every time. Excellent dinner on a budget as well. Everyone had seconds (Family of 5)and we still had a lot for left-overs.

This was very easy and very cheap! I put tortilla chips in the bottom of the bowl before putting in the stew and then I topped it with avocado and cheese. Very good! I used the hot taco seasoning as well and thought it was perfect! Read More

My family loved this. I stuck fairly close to the recipe - used chili beans instead of ranch-style beans...which may be the same thing (I'm not sure what ranch style beans are & couldn't find them in the store). Added 2 stalks of celery and some green pepper when I sauteed the ground beef and I used frozen corn instead of canned. Excellent! Thanks Smayo! Read More

This was great and easy! I only made a few changes: ground turkey instead of beef (i think they taste the same) and i added a green pepper in with the onion. Also i'm not sure what ranch beans are so i just used chili beans. yummm! Read More
