Kidney Bean Stew

As Fall is here I'm always looking for healthy comfort food recipes. We got this recipe courtesy of Chad's Grandpa Langer and it is a Carlos family favorite! From reading the ingredients it doesn't sound that good, but I promise it is!

You basically want an equal amount of each of the ingredients below:

1 lb. lean ground beef, browned
1 pkg baby carrots, sliced in circles
3-4 potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 cans kidney beans - juice included, do not drain
1-2 onions, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all the ingredients in a crock pot and cook for 8 hours. I will be cooked after a few hours but it gets better the longer you leave it in. Towards the end of the cooking time it will get mushy and make it's own "gravy". This is so yummy with soda crackers and hot bread!
