This is an easy, hearty and tasty recipe that I take to the Moose Lodge frequently for potlucks.
Put it all ingredients in the crockpot for about 2 hours +/- to warm and mix flavors. Serve with chips. How easy is that?
Name comes from the fact that black beans look like ticks. :)

It is an easy recipe and everyone loves it, even the kids.
Brown ground meat and drain grease (do not rinse). Add salt, garlic powder, and Cajun seasoning to taste. Let simmer for a couple of minutes (minced garlic can be used but add 3 minutes before you turn off the heat). After a couple of minutes, add all canned goods, Let simmer on low for 30 minutes and your meal is complete. For smaller families it freezes wonderfully. You may also use 1/2 lb. ground meat with 1/2 lb. chorizo to spice it up more. It changes the taste a little bit but it is still wonderful. It is an anytime meal but is great in the winter for a nice warming meal.

In large black skillet, cut up the hog jowl or bacon into tiny pieces, no longer than a quarter. Cook until almost crisp, then add the onion also cut into small pieces. Add kidney beans. (Do not remove the grease from skillet, but pour out the juice from the cans of beans.) Allow to simmer for 45 minutes over low heat.

This is a hearty from-scratch stew. The perfect way to warm up on a cold fall or winter day. Many stores carry a 14 bean blend in their bulk foods section but you can also create your own using whatever dry beans you have on hand (red beans, lentils, split pea, kidney beans, white beans, lima beans, etc.)

Add water to just cover everything. Cook on low for 8-9 hours. Serve over cooked pasta or rice.
Cook onion, pepper and garlic in the hot oil until onion is tender. Add ground beef and crumble with fork until it loses its red color. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer until macaroni is tender and there is little liquid, about 30 minutes.
I start a crock pot of the Sante Fe stew in the morning and just take the crock pot over to our friends' house and keep it on warm. Everyone serves themselves.
Brown beef, drain and rinse with warm water to remove excess fat. Combine beef and rest of ingredients (except cheese and chips) in a Dutch oven. Simmer on low heat till heated thoroughly.
