Slow Cooker Beef And Pepper Stew
1 lb 80/20 ground beef
14 oz can diced tomatoes with green chilies
3 traffic light peppers, diced
15 oz can tomato sauce
3 cups beef broth
Basil and oregano to taste
1 cup uncooked rice
1. Brown the ground beef in a medium skillet, seasoning it to taste with your favorite mesquite seasoning.
2. Combine all ingredients except the rice in the slow cooker. Don't drain any cans - use everything.
3. Turn slow cooker to high for one hour. Then reduce to low for 6-8 hours.
4. One hour before serving, add uncooked rice. An hour on low will cook the rice and soak up some of the juice.
