Cheap and Easy Dump Stew

This time of year I am always on the hunt for delicious recipes that do not require many ingredients or time to make. You cannot get much easier than this, you literally dump ingredients together and you end up with a bowl of perfection. This stew tastes homemade, and it only takes about 10 minutes to make. The most difficult part about the recipe is just browning ground beef. We like to serve this stew with a grilled cheese.

Also, around Thanksgiving you can find canned goods for very cheap. I like to keep these ingredients on hand at all times so if I’m in a pinch and need a quick meal, I can throw this together without being tempted to eat out.
