Hearty Stew
This recipe was originally posted by Vrsherren in the Oct., 2013 What's for Dinner Thread.

Hearty Stew

2 cans diced tomatoes
1 smoked sausage (cut in rounds and browned to get fat out)
1/2 lb. ground beef (cooked & drained)
1 pkg. frozen soup mix veggies or gumbo mixed veggies
1 can of chicken meat or 1 chicken breast diced & cooked
1 envelope onion soup mix
1/2 onion diced
2 stalks celery chopped
2 cups water
1/4 cup pearl barley or rice
1 cup fresh sliced mushrooms optional
Place in a crockpot on high 4-5 hours or med for 6-7 hours

NOTE: this the is original recipe, but I usually add in leftovers. Had some left over meatloaf, crumbled and subbed for the ground beef, leftover fried or roasted chicken (about 1 cup or close), adding in any leftover veggie with the frozen veggies, and leftover plain rice. Good way to clean out your leftovers! This soup can also be frozen. I make it up we have it twice and IF we have leftovers I freeze it and add it to the next soup.

I made this and then reheated and it was even better ... if that's possible!! I love easy recipes lately since I am so busy doing house stuff and ebay. This was a definite winner!
