Great! We loved this Stew! It was so easy to put together because I had all of the ingredients in my pantry. I loved the taste, just like tacos', only no chopping!! It was a good hot soup to serve at lunch, and it was hearty enough that I didn't serve anything else. I used tortilla chips, warmed in the microwave. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Amazingly good and so simple! I couldn't believe how good this turned out. I didn't want to stop eating even when I was full! lol Thanks for the delicious recipe! We used Dark Red Kidney Beans instead of Pinto beans with chili sauce and it was fantastic. I think if it would have been any spicier it wouldn't have been enjoyable for a meal more for a snack. And I LOVE spicy food so that is telling you something. It is fine without the chili sauce. :D Also used 1.5 pounds of meat and 1 and 1/2 packets of taco seasoning. Mmm Mmmm!
I keep trying Merlot's recipes and they keep being 5 Star gems. This one is no different. It was SO easy to throw together after work but tasted like I had been cooking for a long time. Onion powder instead of onions was the only change I made. I served it with crushed tortilla rounds, sour cream, shredded cheese and flour tortillas and it was DELICIOUS! This will be on our menu on a monthly rotation for sure but next time I will double the recipe as there was not a drop left!
INCREDIBLE! I used petite diced tomatoes and two cans of diced chilies in place of the Rotel, and a can of black beans in place of pinto (personal preference) and homemade taco spice. Threw it all together in the crockpot. Added a dollop of sour cream and shredded cheddar and had me some heaven in a bowl! This pairs wonderfully with Yeast Corn Rolls Recipe #101266.
