Beef Fajita Soup

I made this for dinner the other night and it was liked by all! I threw everything in a ziplock bag and put it in the freezer, then, I thawed it out and threw it in the crockpot to cook for the whole day. I served it with cornbread. Very yummy! For the beans, I actually soaked dry beans and then just used 2 cups of each kind (rather than the canned ones called for in the recipe)

Beef Fajita Soup
1-2 lbs stew meat
1 can (15oz) each pinto beans and black beans, drained
1 can (14.5oz) diced tomatoes
1 can (14.5oz) beef broth (I used 2 cups of water and 2 bouillon cubes)
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
1 small red bell pepper, chopped
1 small onion, chopped (or 1/4 cup dried onion)
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp seasoned salt
1 tsp black pepper

Put all in crockpot and cook all day until everything is tender and meat breaks up. I let the kids put sour cream and cheese on top of theirs, but it was just as good without that.
