Mexican Mess w/Rice

1 lb. ground beef, cooked and drained

1 med. onion, diced and cooked with beef

1 can Ro-tel tomatoes w/green chilis

1 small can tomato sauce

1/2 c. ketchup

2 cans hominy, drained

2 cans pinto beans

1 tsp. chili powder

1 tsp. cayenne

1 tsp. Lawry's seasoned salt

In skillet, cook beef and onions, drain. Pour in crockpot. Add cumin, salt, pepper, chili powder (opt.) and stir. Add rotel, tomato sauce and hominy. Stir. Cook on low for approximately 4-6 hrs. Serve with hot rice or chips. Easy and good!

I made this week's menu plan following my new organized way to plan menus...I just follow this simple formula and plug in what is on the list for that day. It's hard to explain so I will post it and you can read about it, here!

Have a great week!
