When you are jonesing for chili cheese fries make a big pot of this instead.
Listen to this scary stat: 1 order of Dairy Queen's Grill & Chill Chili Cheese Fries has 1,220 calories, 72 grams of fat, and 114 grams of carbs. Add a burger and a Blizzard and there should be no question why Americans are getting fatter and fatter.

1 lb Ground Beef (or Turkey, or Chicken)
1 - 15 oz. can Pinquitos Beans, drained
1 - 15 oz. can Diced Tomatoes
1/2 Red Onion, diced
1/2 Yellow Onion, diced
3 Green Onions, diced

1 1/2 cups Beef Broth
1/2 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Brown ground beef. Add drained beans and diced tomatoes and their juice. Pour into crock pot. Saute onions and peppers in olive oil till golden. Add garlic and saute 1 minute more.
Pour over meat in crock pot. Add cream cheese and beef broth. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. In the last 1/2 hour add shredded cheese and stir. Serve topped with sour cream, more shredded cheese and a splash of hot sauce.
If you use a different bean than the S&W brand Pinquitos Beans. Add about a 1/2 teaspoon of cumin and increase the garlic. Try and find the beans though they are super yummy.
I love cooking with the crock pot. You throw all the ingredients in it in the morning and you're done. Just throw some flour or something on your face when you call everyone for dinner so they think you worked really hard ;)
