Taco Stew

Another recipe from the Crockpot girls  on Facebook!  I modified it a little (their ingredients in ()


1 lb. Ground Turkey (already cooked hamburger meat)
1 15 oz can drained black beans + 1/3 can water (pinto beans)
1 15 oz can ranch style beans
1 10 oz can Rotel or diced tomatoes with green chiles
1 14.5 oz can stewed tomatoes rough chopped (diced tomatoes)
1½ cups corn -1 can
3 T homemade taco seasoning (1 packet of taco seasoning)
1 packet of ranch dressing mix


So here's the deal on this one, we hardly ever have ground beef in the house, it's Aldi's ground turkey for us.  Phyllis doesn't like pinto beans - I drained the black ones and added water because black bean juice is so dark. I had stewed tomatoes so that's what I used.  I don't buy taco seasoning, I make my own (while I realize some may find it ridiculous that I make my own - I find it kind of silly that they don't - spices at Aldi so they are cheaper and it tastes better - but to each their own).
