This stew can be made fresh, browning the meat then tossing all the ingredients together in the slow cooker, or it can be prepared ahead of time for freezing and quick assembly for a quick crock pot meal when you need it!

Ground beef, link sausage, cumin, chilies, and chili powder give this hearty soup its Southwest flavor. This dish is quick, easy, and tastes best when it simmers all day. Bake some Mexican cornbread, toss a simple green salad, and you have a great meal.
