I got this recipe from my Nana, and it's so yummy! This will definitely feed a large group or your family 2 or 3 times. It's well worth it and very inexpensive. It's delicious served with cornbread. It freezes very well too and you can do it via your crockpot or on the stove.
-2 pounds ground meat (chuck is what my Nana uses, but I used turkey or leave out for a vegetarian option)
-1 large onion, chopped (or I used 2 Tbsp dried minced onion)
-1 large can diced tomatoes (or 2 regular size cans)
-1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies (like Rotel)
-3 (11oz each) cans white shoe peg corn (or 2 regular size cans corn - I didn't realize I didn't need the 3rd can until after I took the picture and started putting it together, so ignore the 3rd can of corn pictured)
-1 can pinto beans, drained & rinsed
-1 can kidney beans, drained & rinsed
-1 can black beans, drained & rinsed
-1 can navy beans, drained & rinsed
-2 packages of taco seasoning or double my homemade taco seasoning recipe
-1 package of ranch seasoning (leave for dairy free, watch for other allergens)
-4-5 cups waterDirections
Brown your ground meat and onion and drain. Add all ingredients to a very large pot and simmer on the stovetop for 2 hours. OR.... add all ingredients in your crockpot and cook on high 4-6 hours or on low 8-10 hours.
