Crock Pot Hodge Podge

Tonight’s dinner was born from several recipes that sounded good but I was missing one or two key ingredients from each.  I decided to just throw together what I had and hope for the best!

  • 1 lb ground beef, browned and drained
  • Onion (I used the Red Spring Onions still in my crisper drawer from last week’s box of produce.  I chopped up two onions and cooked them up with the ground beef.)
  • 3 potatoes, diced
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 (12 oz) jar salsa + water (filled the empty jar with water and dumped into crock pot)
  • frozen peas (I just poured in about 3/4 of a bag)
  • beans (I had intended to use a can of black, a can of kidney but found that I didn’t have them in my pantry after all.  I ended up using a mix of dried beans. Had to cook them for a few hours first, then throw them in the crock pot, which had already been cooking the rest of the meal.)

I am thinking that when it comes out, we can sprinkle some cheese on top, maybe add some tortilla chips?  I’ll let you know how it turns out!

      Oh man, I can’t believe I never posted about it! I am so far behind! The meal came out pretty good actually! And I made the fava beans the other day. It was a LOT of work for a so so product! Oh well.
