What's for supper? Beef-sausage tortilla filling

It was a busy day and Mr. Crockpot did the supper again. This "recipe" is proof that it's really okay to try out your own slow cooker ideas.

Improvised Beef-Sausage Tortilla Stuffing

1 lb. ground beef
Leftover sausages, chopped or sliced
The end of a jar of mild salsa (maybe half a cup?)
1 cup beef broth or water (use to rinse out the jar of salsa)
1 can no-salt-added kidney or other beans, rinsed and drained
Tortillas and toppings (cheese, sour cream, shredded lettuce)

Brown the ground beef. Add to the other ingredients in the crockpot. Start on High to get things going well, then cook on Low all afternoon (you are just heating things through, so Low is okay). I added just a bit of thickening at the end because I didn't want it to be too sloppy in the tortillas.

You could also serve this mixture over rice, or combine with cooked pasta. Or just leave it a bit liquid, eat it in bowls, and call it sort-of chili.
