A fellow pea, on http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/, shared this recipe for the crock pot. It was excellent and hit the spot after a long day out at the Air Show (which was truly amazing as well).
taco soup in the crock pot
3 cans of beans (I used black, kidney, and pinto)
1 can of corn
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 lb beef browned
1 pkg ranch mix
1 pkg taco seasoning
Mix it all up and cook for 4-6 hours on low.
We put it over fritos and put shredded Mexican cheese on top, so we kind of ate it more like a taco salad. It was good and even the kids ate it. This is definately one I'll make again!
