Recipe Review - Crockpot Black Bean Mexican Stew

I have a not so secret love affair with my slow cooker. I'm not ashamed to admit it. I am always on the hunt for fantastic new recipes, so when I have one that we love and use over and over, I want to share too! This Mexican stew can be served as is, over rice, with cornbread or warmed tortillas, or even with tortilla chips. Toppings are up to you too. We serve it with shredded cheddar, a bit of sour cream, and chunks of fresh avocado, but use what you like, and enjoy!

This is where it gets really easy! All you need to do is dump all your ingredients into your crock pot and mix it up. Cook on high 4-5 hours, then low until serving. As mentioned above, we like to serve ours with shredded cheddar, sour cream, and avocado by the bowl with warm buttered corn tortillas. Whatever way you serve it, I hope you love it!
Another great thing about recipes like this is that kids can help. I opened the cans and my 4-year-old did the rest. Don't mind the giant mess on the counter. It was that simple, and around here, if the kiddo helps out with dinner, she is always more eager to eat.
