The ingredients are simple, but together they make this awesome stew. If you want to a little added crunch, crush a few tortilla chips on top of each bowl. —Suzanne Francis, Marysville, Washington


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cans (10 ounces each) diced tomatoes and green chiles
