Easy Crockpot Camp Stew

With fall weather finally here (okay, at least it's only 80 degrees now instead of 95, so that's close enough to fall weather in my book), it's time to get out the crockpot. I love making soups and stews in my crockpot, but when it's hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk it's hard for me to muster the desire for a steaming hot bowl of soup. That's one of the reasons why I'm so thankful for the cooler temperatures.

Here's a recipe for a very easy camp stew--the only prep work is opening cans and pouring them into your crockpot.

Camp Stew

1 can crushed tomatoes
1 can creamed corn
1 can each of barbecue pork, chicken and beef (I use Castleberry's brand)
1 can potatoes
1 can beans (I usually use pinto or ranch beans)

Combine all in crock pot and simmer on low 6-8 hours.

FYI, although the recipe calls for a can each of pork, beef and chicken, when I'm making the stew just for myself, I usually only put in a can of bbq pork. Cuts down on calories (not to mention cost)! But for feeding more than just me, I usually put in more meat.
