This recipe is a favorite for my kids. They like these Goulash type recipes where we mix hamburger, beans, corn and tomato’s. With this recipe you will need to cook the hamburger before hand, and I would highly suggest using a lean ground beef and this recipe can easily be swapped out with ground turkey or ground venison.
1 1/2 Pounds of Lean Ground Beef, Browned (I used a 93/7% split)
1 16 Ounce Can of Kidney Beans, Rinsed and Drained
1 16 Ounce Can of Corn, Drained.
1 10.75 Ounce can of Tomato Soup
1 Cup of Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
1 Small Yellow Onion, chopped
1/2 Teaspoon of Chili Powder
1/4th Cup of Milk or Water
Combine all ingredients in a crock.
Mix well and then cook on low for about 4 hours or high 1-2 hours.
Place all ingredients into a sturdy freezer ziploc bag.
I mixed this a bit with my hands, and then laid flat, pushed as much air out as possible and froze it. I will mix it well once I place it in the crock (trying to avoid making more dirty dishes for myself).
Cook in the crock with the same times as above.
Hi I'm Sarah, I live in very rural Kansas with my 3 children. We also have 3 hens, Betty Lou, Dinozzo, Jenny Jewel. Our fun involves gardening, living in an iconic area of the country where corn fields,small towns, tractors, farmers and hard work are still very important and occasionally when we need some adventure we drive on over the border to Missouri where the real shopping stores are...aka Target. I grew up in Utah so I enjoy commemorating with Heidi over everything Rocky Mountains.
