southwest beans...

1 can kidney beans; rinsed and drained
1 can black beans; rinsed and drained
1 can fat-free re fried beans
1 can pinto beans; rinsed and drained
1 can diced green chili's
1 can diced stewed tomatoes
1 can corn
1 envelope taco seasoning
1 envelope ranch dip mix

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Place in crock pot on low 2-3 hours, or warm for 5-6 hours.

This was really good, and could not be easier. It would make a great chili, a great dip for chips, a burrito or taco filling, or whatever you want it to be! Offer it as a healthy (no one would even know or care) option while you watch a little football (or great commercials) this weekend. The length of time to cook this is really up to you. It really just needs to be warmed through long enough for the beans to soften. I cooked mine on warm for about 5 hours and turned it up to low for one hour. The longer it sits, the better just so the seasonings can combine well.

I think we'll have this for crockpot Sunday. Looks good.
