Spicy Vegetable Stew

Make this tonight in the crockpot, or freeze it for another night!

1 lb ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1 (26-30 oz) jar meatless spaghetti sauce
16 oz package frozen mixed vegetables
10 oz can diced tomatoes with green chilies (or without, if you don't want it spicy)
1 tsp beef bouillon granules
1 tsp pepper
3.5 cups water

In a skillet, cook beef and onion over medium-high heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the meat and remaining ingredients (except water) into a freezer bag; seal and freeze.

To cook: Thaw in refrigerator. Add to crockpot, along with the water. Cook on low 8 hours or until vegetables are tender.

This is a super tasty recipe, and I like that it uses ground beef instead of chunks! I used a mixture of frozen wax beans, green beans, and carrots, and wasn't sure how good it would be with those, but my husband and I loved it.
