We tried this recipe out this past week. It made the house smell incredible! I have to be honest, though, when I looked at it as it was cooking, I thought, "There is no way my kids will eat this." They were hesitant. There was little bit of complaining. And then, they all ate it and liked it. One of the boys even asked for a second bowl! My kids and I ate it with cheddar cheese on top. My hubby (who came home late) ate it with ketchup and mustard. It is not an impressive looking meal but it does taste good.
1 onion, chopped
1 1/2 lbs ground beef, browned and drained
6 medium potatoes, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 16 oz cans kidney beans
15 oz can diced tomatoes mixed with 2 Tbsp flour
(I substituted petite diced tomatoes. I also think that it would be even better if you used 2 cans.)
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1. Layer onions, ground beef, potatoes, garlic, and beans in slow cooker.
2. Spead tomatoes or soup over all. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
3. Cover. Cook on low 5-6 hours, or until potatoes are tender.
