This is the easiest recipe on the planet! It's very similar to chili, so is great with crackers or cornbread. It serves a large crowd, and is very inexpensive. This is one of those recipes that tastes even better the next day. I got the recipe from a lady I used to work with. It can be somewhat spicy, so you can use mild Rotel Tomatoes if you need it milder.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 -2 lb ground beef
  • 3 (16 ounce) cans ranch style beans
