Crock Pot Recipe-- Party Pleasing Beef Dish

Check this out! Honey, this is like eating pizza or lasagna! It's gooood! Who says we can't have casseroles?

Party-Pleasing Beef Dish

1 lb ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
¾ cup beef broth
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
1 can (6 oz) tomato paste ##
2 tsp sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried oregano
1 cup cooked rice

Optional (but recommended) toppers
Tortilla chips
Shredded cheddar cheese
Chopped green onions
Sliced ripe olives
Sour cream
Chopped fresh tomatoes
Taco sauce
Hot sauce

In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.

Line your crock pot. Dump the meat and onion mix in a 3-qt slow cooker. Add the next eight ingredients; mix well. Cover and cook on low 4 hours or until heated through. Add rice; cover and cook at least 10 minutes longer. Serve over the tortilla chips with the toppings of your choice.

I had to double the recipe to feed four hungry adults. I personally did not have the tortilla chips, and the rice was served separately since it won't pass my stoma. Leave off the rice. You won't miss it.

##--I substituted 2 T tubed concentrated tomato paste. Tubed concentrated tomato paste keep much better than opening a small can and hoping you can use the rest of the can before it goes bad. I found mine in the “international” section of the supermarket.
