Hers is one posted early on by Bonnie :

Taco Soup
1 lb ground beef, browned and drained
1 can black beans, undrained
1 can pinto beans, undrained (original recipe calls for kidney, but I think it should be pinto)
1 can corn, drained
1 large (28 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained (recipe calls for crushed, but whatever)
1 medium can sliced olives, drained (optional)
about half a small can chopped green chiles (optional)
1 packet taco seasoning mix
1 packet ranch dressing mix (I've never used it)
1 small onion, chopped (I use dehydrated, works fine)

Throw the whole lot into a large crock pot. Cook on low 4-6 hours.

Great with shredded cheese and sour cream on top, served with Jiffy corn muffins. Yum.

Here is one posted by freshwaterfish:


Lentil stew recipe (made it yesterday )

5 cups water
2 t bouillon powder
2 cloves crushed garlic
1 t ground sage
1/4 t ground red pepper
1/2 cup diced onion (I sometimes use red onion for variety and color)
1 cup diced potato
1/2 cup diced bell pepper (red is prettier)
1/2 cup diced celery (optional)
1 cup dried lentils or split peas
1 cup diced sausage or ham (optional)

Throw all ingredients in crockpot except for the meat. Bring to a boil on high, turn down to low and simmer for 6-8 hours. Add meat about 15 minutes before serving. Enjoy with homemade biscuits/scones/dinner rolls...
