I was also telling Doug that I think the inventor of the crock pot is a genius and I wish I could personally thank him! Which led me to look that up, so I could share it with you!
Here is the Wikipidia info about the crock pot. And I stumbled across a blog written by the inventor's daughter, here.
Okay, so here's the recipe for you, I found it on Taste of Home.
2 lbs taco meat, cooked, drained, and taco seasoning added
2 cans rotel (or one rotel, one stewed tomatoes)
1 can corn
2 cans of beans (whatever variety you prefer or have on hand)
1 envelope ranch dressing mix
1 1/2 cups water (next time I think I'll do just one cup, then add more if needed)
Combine all ingredients (meat is pre-cooked) in crock pot. Cook on low or high, until warm. I'm guess it took just a couple hours on low, and our meat was leftover this time, so cold from the fridge. But it kept warm for several hours cooking on low, and it was no problem. EASY PEASY. You could also cook this on the stove top if you were wanting to eat it right away.
We served ours with bell peppers, jalapeños, sour cream, cheese, black olives, salsa, tortilla chips, and corn chips. And sweet tea, of course, sweet tea. :)
