So, honestly, what is the point of cold weather if not to allow for slow cooker cooking?!?!? I absolutely LOVE using my slow cooker, especially when it's cold, and it HAS been pretty cold the past few days, so I thought 'why not?'
For today's meal, I put about 2lbs. of beef stew meat, 1 28oz. can of diced tomatoes and 1 tsp. chili powder into my slow cooker. It also called for a bag of frozen onions, but I was out so I just did without. I will definitely try it next time, though!
The recipe called to add some Mexican cheese on top, but all I had was Mozzarella so I improvised! It was only 440 calories and only $3.62/serving! Seriously, I don't make up these calories or cost people...you can do it, I promise!
Here's the recipe!
2lbs. beef stew meat
1 can (28oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 tsp. chili powder
1 package (1oz.) taco seasoning mix
1 can (15oz.) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (11oz.) Mexicorn, drained
Mexican cheese blend to top (or your choice of cheese)
