Spicy Beef & Beans Stew

We sometime include ground beef in our grocery list for one reason - for the Husband's Pinoy style spaghettie. Using ground beef makes the sauce for the Huband's Pinoy style spaghetti a lot tastier.  But then again, like anybody with cravings, the Husband would always have something in mind to eat other than the Pinoy style spaghetti.

Spicy beef and beans stew.  This is one of those beef recipes that I usually whip up when I see minced beef just lying inside the freezer for a long time.  It reminds me of the chili con carne of Wendy's  that I used to eat before when I was still eating red meat.

I used to love this kind of minced beef stew with nachos, doritos, or any tortilla chips.  I also used to add lots of grated cheese or spreadable cheese  like cheez whiz. This with a liter of ice cold coke and a nice tv series to watch like the Big Bang theory or criminal minds would make a rest day great. 

If you are not fond of chips, this spicy beef and beans stew is great as a rice topping too.
