Toss a few ingredients into a slow cooker and when you get home from work, dinner is served. Try these soups, stews -- even dessert!

Hearty Beef Chili

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 8 to 10 hours (on low) or 4 to 5 hours (on high) + 15 minutes (on high)
Makes: 10 servings

28-ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained

10-ounce can chopped tomatoes and green chili peppers, undrained

2 cups vegetable juice or tomato juice

1 to 2 tablespoons chili powder

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 1/2 pounds beef or pork stew meat, cut into 1-inch cubes

2 cups chopped onion (2 large)

1 1/2 cups chopped celery (3 stalks)

1 cup chopped green bell pepper (1 large)

2 15-ounce cans black beans, kidney beans, or chickpeas, rinsed and drained

Reduced-fat cheddar, low-fat sour cream and cilantro (optional)

In a 6-quart cooker, combine both cans of tomatoes, vegetable juice, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and garlic. Mix in the meat, onion, celery, and pepper. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours. Stir in the drained beans, then cover and cook for 15 minutes more (if using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting). Ladle chili into bowls. Garnish with cheese, sour cream, and cilantro, if desired.

This was good...I didn't discard the cooking liquid(I assume it says to discard because it is high calorie?) used it on mashed potatoes and a little on the meat. It had a bit of spice to it but I will probably make it a tad spicer next time.

This was good but the meat was a little dry. I am going to add a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies next time.
