Cowboy Stew

READY IN: 5hrs 20mins
Recipe by WorkNMomma

I created this recipe when it was cold outside a couple of years ago... wanted something sort of like chili, but with the comfort food feel of a roast. This is yummy and can easily be heated with jalepenos for adults or dialed down a bit for kids. My family loves this dish, and it's so easy to fill the crock pot and come home to great smells and flavors for dinner.

Why hasn't anyone tried this before? And given it the 5 stars it deserves?! I did everything as directed, with the exception of the beans. I didn't have chili beans in the pantry, but did find Campbell's Bean & Bacon soup. Yummo! So great; thanks for sharing with us!
