Ask each child to bring his or her favorite vegetable (enough to equal 1 cup chopped) 4-6 ounces of their favorite meat, cooked. (You might want to be prepared with a can of chopped tomatoes and a can of pinto or kidney beans in case no child brings those.)
- 2 cans condensed soup - cream of potato or cream of chicken
- 2 cups water
Wash the vegetables and give each child a safe utensil to cut up his or her vegetable. Mix the ingredients together, put into a 4-6 quart slow cooker and cover with water. Cover the slow cooker, set it on high, and cook for one hour.
Burgoo Stew is a traditional Kentucky Derby entree. A cross between stew and chili, it may be too spicy for young children. Instead have children create their "own" Derby stew.
