“Hearty, filling and man-pleasing describes this stew. Link sausage, cumin, chilies, and chili powder is what gives this soup its Southwest flavor. This dish is quick, easy, and tastes best when it simmers in a slow cooker or even on the stove all day. Bake some Mexican cornbread, toss a simple green salad, and you have a great meal.”

  1. Crumble the ground beef into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage, garlic and onion; cook and stir until the meat is no longer pink. Drain off grease, and transfer the contents of the skillet to a large pot.
  2. Pour the tomatoes into the pot with the meat, and stir in the potatoes, pinto beans, corn, diced tomatoes with chilies, mixed vegetables and water. Season with cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. Cover, and simmer over medium-low heat for at least 1 hour. Stir occasionally. The longer this stew cooks, the better it gets.

Excellent! I divided my recipe in half initially as I was afraid of investing so much into something that I may not eat. Even by cutting it in half, it made a lot. I used 1.5 lbs of hamburger. Had a bag in the freezer of some left over spaghetti sauce so I put that in there, added a little more cumin and chili powder....and it was really good. Have enough for about 4 more meals - so in the freezer it goes....awaiting a chili cold night. I have made the other kind before where you add the ranch dressing mix and this recipe is so much better! Enjoy!



Fast and easy preparation. Typical taste of Texas...hearty and spicy.



My husband actually saw this recipe first and asked me to make it for him. It did not disappoint! We have a big family (five kids) and this recipe makes enough for two dinners and a lunch. Great value and great taste all in one. We've also served this for guests who've loved it too and always ask for the recipe. I can't say enough about how much we really love this recipe. It's definitely a family favorite now.
