This is from Progresso. I just used a regular can of plum tomatoes and put in some dried basil. Good with cheese sprinkled on top or also some sour cream.

This was excellent! I upped the stew meat to 3 lbs and, preferring a little more zing, switched out the can of plum tomatoes for a can of Rotel Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies and switched out the medium onion for a large. I added a can of red beans along with the black for a little more variety, plus an extra can of mexicorn whole kernel corn. I, too feel slow cook times are too lengthy, and reduced the cook time to 5 hours and 20 minutes (no browning the meat ahead, either). <br/><br/>My husband loved this dish. Simple and very flavorful.
