It’s a busy time of the year with the holidays here. When schedules get busy, healthy eating often evades us as we are too tired to cook a meal when we get home. That’s why I love the crockpot. Yes, there is a bit of planning. But it’s so nice to come home to a warm meal.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 cups chopped up sweet potatoes (keep pieces small to make sure they cook)
  • 1/2 an onion chopped
  • 1 red pepper chopped up
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1.5 Tbsp of chili powder
  • 1 tsp of cumin
  • salt and pepper to season
  • 1 14.5 oz of diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups beef broth

Place all of the ingredients in your crockpot. Give it a good mix and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours.
