Super Easy and Incredible Tasting

Sure this needs to simmer for a few hours but if you have a crock-pot of a slow cooker you can always just put everything in and let it do it’s thing for several hours. I would suggest pre-cooking the beef and putting it in cooked rather than raw so you don’t end up with if being greasy. If you are anything like me you will go ahead and buy a big package of ground beef on sale of at Costco and cook it all up at once then divide it out for meals. The last thing I have time for is cooking every day and being able to prep my meals in advance really it a time and money saver!
