Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 pkg (16-oz) frozen corn
1 can black beans
1 can chili beans
1 can pinto beans with jalapeno
1 can diced tomatoes
1 pkg taco seasoning mix
1 soup can water

Brown the ground beef and onion together in a skillet, stirring to break up meat.  Pour into a colander and drain well.

In the crockpot or slow cooker, combine the drained beef and onions, corn, all the beans, and the tomatoes.  In a small bowl, stir the water into the taco seasoning mix and blend well; pour over the ingredients in the crockpot.

Place lid on cooker and cook about 3 hours on low or 1 to 1 1/2 hours on high or until heated through and flavors have a chance to blend.
