  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 1 lb ground beef browned and drained
  • 3 large potatoes sliced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 cans kidney beans do not drain
  • 15oz can diced tomatoes do not drain
  • 10.5oz can cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1.5 cups cheddar cheese grated


  • Brown the ground beef, and drain well.
  • Place the browned beef, and the remaining ingredients except the cheese in a crock pot (slow cooker) and combine well.
  • Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours.
  • Sprinkle cheese on top, cover.
  • Serve when cheese is melted (about 10 minutes).



  • Add a can of black beans, stretch out the meal, or make sure there are more leftovers.
  • Add a can of sweet corn and/or a can of green chiles - make it your own recipe!
  • Use red potatoes (don't peel!)
  • Instead of Italian Seasoning, use my DIY recipe for Tuscan Seasoning
  • Use Cream of Mushroom soup for a different kind of flavor.
  • A little chili powder goes VERY well in this dish, with beans and beef it's a no brainer, right?
