Quick Pioneer Stew

I tried this stew at a stake women's conference last weekend. It was so yummy!

2 cans kidney beans - drained
1 (14 1/2 oz) can beef broth
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can whole corn, undrained
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2 to 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 to 3 cups cooked wheat berries (really this depends on how much you can sneak in the stew without your family noticing...)
1 Tbsp. flour
1/2 to 1 lb ground beef, browned
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup diced green bell pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder

In skillet cook ground beef, chopped onion, green pepper until meat is browned. Drain off fat. Add meat mixture to corn tomatoes beans, and wheat berries. Add chili powder and salt to taste. Simmer for 20 minutes
Then combine 1 tbsp flour with 2 tbsp cold water, stir into stew. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Add cheese to the top just before serving. Serves 8.
