I few weeks back, while I was searching for a specific cookbook, I came across one that I had forgotten about. I decided to pull it from my shelf, dust it off and take a peak. While there are a lot of recipes in this book that looked great for some reason I had not yet tried them. Until now.
So far, we have 2 new FAMILY favorites! Plus several more on my list to try out.
This one that I am going to share with you is delicious, even the Hubster said it was a new family favorite! It is very hearty and fits quite nicely into the comfort foods category.
Makes about 20 cups
- 1 lb ground chuck
- 1 green bell pepper (diced)
- 1 onion (chopped)
- 1 lb sausage (the recipe calls for thinly sliced kielbasa, but I used cooked Italian sausage)
- 2 (10 oz) cans tomato soup (undiluted)
- 2 (10 oz) cans diced tomatoes (undrained)
- 1 (10 oz) can tomatoes and green chiles (undrained)
- 4 (16 oz) cans pinto beans (undrained)
- 4 (15 oz ) cans pork and beans (undrained)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- Cook first 3 ingredients in a stockpot over medium-high heat, stirring until meat crumbles and is no longer pink. Remove from pot, and drain.
- Brown sausage in stockpot; drain and return to pot. Add ground chuck mixture, tomato soup, and next 6 ingredients.
- Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes. Stir in cheese. Enjoy!
NOTE: To prepare in a slow cooker, brown ground chuck and sausage as directed. Place ground chuck mixture, sausage, and next 7 ingredients in a 5-quart slow cooker. Cook, covered, at LOW 8 to 10 hours. Stir in cheese just before serving.
