Beef stew meat becomes moist through slow cooking and with ingredients like diced tomatoes with green chiles. A flavorful cross between chili and stew, this zingy slow-cooker meal is one for the books. Ground cumin, chopped garlic, chili powder and a can of diced tomatoes with green chiles lend an incomparable flavor to hearty stew meat. The best part is that the slow cooker does most of the work for you, so you can throw the ingredients together in the morning and sit down to a warm, homemade dinner in the evening. MORE+ LESS-

  • Packages of stew meat can have pieces of different sizes. Cut any large pieces into smaller same-size pieces so that everything cooks in the same amount of time.
  • Serve leftovers tucked into taco shells or tortillas for quick-to-fix tacos.
  • Looking for a little kick? Try serving with a seeded, diced jalapeño pepper to pack some extra spice.
  • Try adding your favorite veggies to this dish to enhance the flavor and pack in even more nutrients! Chopped bell peppers, cubed potatoes and zucchini slices are some easy options to experiment with.
