1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced

4 thinly sliced carrots

2 celery ribs, thinly sliced 

1 medium red bell pepper

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon dried oregano

Brown ground beef.  Put into a 6 quart crock pot with rest of ingredients except corn, beans, and rice.  Cook on high for 1 hour.  Change to low for 4-5 hours or until veggies are tender. Add corn, beans and rice.  Stir.  Cook on low for 1 more hour or until heated.
