It's rare that I take a chance on completely unrated recipes simply because I like to see what other people said about the recipe before I try it... but this stew was just what I was looking for so I had to try it! I was pleasantly surprised and now wish that I would have thought to take a pic of the stew so you could have a photo for your fantastic recipe! I'm not a huge fan of beef stews usually but using the base of spaghetti sauce made all of the difference to me (I used Ragu original meatless). I tried to follow the recipe as closely as I could while using the items that I had on hand. The only changes that I made were using 2 cans of mixed veggies rather than frozen because that's what I had and I used plain diced tomatoes since I didn't have any with chili's but I did add a sprinkle of chili powder and a little bit of dried jalapenos to give it the kick that it was missing from the chili's. I also used 2 cans of beef broth to replace the water and bouillon (I was trying to clean out some pantry canned goods can you tell? lol). I let this cook on low in the crock pot while I was at work all day which was about 9hrs or so. I severed this over homemade parmesan chive potato pancakes with a dollop of sour cream on top. I have to say this was one of the most successful soups or stews that I've made and we love LOVED it! Thanks so much for such a great and easy recipe!
This was a very easy meal. The fiance loved it but it wasn't spicy enough for me. I added some jalapenos in it for the kick. Also I couldn't find buillion and I didn't have beef broth so I just added a ton of garlic powder. I like that it is a thicker stew and I loved the ground beef. I had a ton of leftovers but I don't feel bad about eating them. It is delicious. Try scaling back though unless you want a week's worth of stew. Also I was in a hurry so I cooked it on high for 4 hours. It turned out okay but would have been better with the suggested time.
I made this last night for the first time and it's wonderful. Very quick and easy to make. I did take note of other reviewers opinions that said it wasn't very spicy and decided to add two cans of chopped green chilies. It turned out great with just enough spice to the taste. I'll definitely be making this one again.
Very good soup! Next time I will experiment with reducing the amount of water. I used an 18oz jar of marinara sauce and 3 1/2 cups water. It barely fit into my old 3 1/2 qt Rival Crockpot. And there was more liquid than needed. This is definitely a soup - not a stew.
