Hello, Readers! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I don’t know about you, but Thanksgiving always makes me feel like I won’t eat another bite for a week, much less cook! After all the meal planning, multiple trips to the grocery store, cooking, cooking some more, and then eating way more than I should…I am just so burnt out on cooking! But alas, without fail every year, you do in fact get hungry again, and that pile of leftovers eventually runs out.

So here is an easy crock pot dish that you don’t have to slave over. This is a family-pleasing meal for sure! Your husbands will like it because it’s a real “meat and potatoes” hearty dish. Because well…it has meat and potatoes…along with beans, corn, cheese, and more. This is super filling, and it’s also REALLY delicious. Like…way way better than I thought it was going to be. It’s actually really creamy and so flavorful!

    Hey Lindsay! So this week I am out of town on business. I browned the ground beef and chopped the onion before I left home, and left all the other ingredients for this recipe on the counter next to the crock pot for my husband. He threw it all together himself, and here’s his response:

    “I tried a bit. It still has an hour and it is delicious!!!!!! I can’t wait to eat it.”

    Yes, six exclamation points. Talk about a success 🙂 Thanks for posting!

      Hi Elizabeth! I love getting that kind of feedback! And like my husband, he couldn’t wait to open the crock pot lid and try a bite before it was ready. Haha I feel like all men share that trait. I’m very honored that he felt it deserved six exclamation points :-). Thanks for sharing!

  2. This is a big hit with the Leaches! So flavorful and I love that I can put it in the crockpot and when I get home from class its there waiting for me.
