The looks of a classic beef stew, made with potatoes, carrots, onions, and chunks of beef gone Mexican style! Add in the spice of Rotel, taco seasoning, and both pinto and black beans, and you have put a new twist on Taco Tuesday! Make it on your stove top or in your crock pot. Top it with sour cream, cheese and corn chips!
Beef stew is one of our favorite comfort foods. Here on my site, you will find the one we use most often, Mulligan Stew. It’s simple to make, stove top or crock pot, and is always a family favorite.
Switching things up a bit is always fun, right? How about this new twist on Beef Stew for Taco Tuesday??
All of the heartiness of traditional beef stew, with the spice of a good Mexican style meal!
And it’s all in one pot!
Chunks of potatoes and carrots, plus two cans of beans, both pinto and black add to the heartiness, and dare I say, healthiness of this recipe.
It’s perfect for weeknights, or any night, really. Cooks on your stove top in a little under an hour, and can be tossed in the crock pot for an easy meal to come home to.
My kids came over to the stove while it was simmering to steal a taste. It sort of plays tricks on you! It smells like you’re making tacos, lift the lid, you see stew, one taste and you’re back to tacos again … it’s the perfect combination of two of our favorite meals!
Spoon it into a bowl and top it with sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese and corn chips!
I think this would be AWESOME for tailgating this fall! Don’t you?
However or wherever you serve it, just give this one a try! You’re sure to get rave reviews!
