Crock-Pot Dinner

I rarely, almost never post recipes on here because while I can cook, I don't like to and do not claim to be particularly skilled at it. I do however love reading other people's recipes and have tried quite a few. Some time ago, Kim over at His Hands and His Feet Today posted a recipe for taco soup that we really liked. Today I knew we would have a longer day at church as James is taking his Baptism classes so I decided to just throw all of the ingredients in the crock pot before we left. When we came home and opened the door it smelled so good that I have never had kids change out of church clothes so fast. LOL!

It was very warm today, so I decided to not do this as soup, but as nachos.

Our version of Crock-Pot Nachos:

1/2 lb of ground chuck (we rarely eat red meat so this is all that I use, but you could use more)
1 can whole kernel corn (drained)
1 can beans (kidney, black, whatever your favorite) drained and rinsed
1 can tomatoes (diced, stewed, however...)
1 pack taco seasoning (per amount of meat)
1 cup water

My ground chuck was frozen when I started so I just threw it in, added the canned items, emptied the seasoning on top, threw in the water, covered, set it on high and left. When we came home 4 hours later, I stirred, added another 1/2 cup of water and it was ready. I served in bowls with nacho chips (we like *Scoops*) on the bottom, spooned mixture over the chips, added shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream.

It was so easy (especially since the kids opened the cans, rinsed and drained everything while I was in the shower) and fun.
