Top Review by Bonnie G 2

Made this for dinner and served over hot buttered noodles. Such an easy dinner and I made it even easier by frying everything as directed and then dumping in the crock pot and letting it go on low for 5 hours. This was a plus for several reasons, the obvious of the ease of making and since I used stew meat made it come out tender with all the flavors blended into it. I used smoked paprika and did add some cumin seeds. We like spicy so the chili was a nice addition
