This recipe was from my mother in law Leona whom was one day making dinner and as we were coming in from a long day. The house smelled incredible and the site of hot Corn bread was great. She called it Burgue soup, could have been burger soup but Papa always called it Burgue soup. Realize I was a young girl and any recipe during the cold Season that was easy was wonderful so here's her recipe for a quick and really easy hardy hot dinner. Enjoy !

Serves:

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

6 Hr

Ingredients

2 can(s)
corn
2 can(s)
red or black beans ( kidney)
2 can(s)
stewed tomatoes ( spicey or mild)
7-8
medium white potatoes ( washed,peeled,diced)
1Large
yellow onion chopped( added to hamburger while cooking
2 Tbsp
chili powder ( to use for taste) i use more love the " wow " factor
1/4 to 1/2 tsp
cayenne pepper ( this is my choice to add ) this is the " yow " factor
2-3 lb
lean hamburger (cooked-drained)
1 can(s)
beef broth (reduced salt)
water to cover
1 c
shredded sharp cheddar (to serve with stew if desired)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a big Pot or Slow cooker, add all the canned vegetables, do not drain. Wash,Peel,and Dice your Potatoes then add.
2
Cook your Hamburger,and Onions together and add spices,and drain any fat from Hamburger ( if any) I use lean meat so as to keep the content of fat minimal and it tastes better.You can add more spices any time for more " Zip "
3
Add this to the vegetable mixture with the Beef Broth and cover with water about 1-2 inches. Add Salt and Pepper to your taste, I do not use salt due to the content from the canned Vegetables.
4
Let stew heat up on medium heat to start (remember to stir),then turn to low heat and cover,and allow to simmer for 6-7 hours, stirring through out day,checking fluid level, you may add water from time to time as it will thicken,you decide how thick or juicy we like it with more juice, (kinda slurpy). A slow cooker does make it easier if your away from home, keeping in the moisture, of course keep in mind you can adjust to your taste or liking. Serve with Sweet Corn Bread and Enjoy. What's nice for me is I remember Nana every time I make it, it's a good memory !
