Slowcooker Chile Colorado Tacos
by Monica Resinger, http://homemakersjournal.com

Your family will be begging you to make this all the time... it is delicious and easy! It will also make your house smell so good and it is a great dish for impressing friends and family. Set it out buffet style so people can make up their own tacos with amounts they like.

  • 2 lbs. beef roast (or beef stew meat) cut into 1" chunks, browned and seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 8 oz. Tomato Sauce
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. Chile Powder
  • 2 Jalapeno Peppers, chopped

Combine all ingredients in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours. When meat is done, fry as many corn tortillas as desired to crispy but still a little soft and season them with a little salt. Set out some shredded cheddar or other cheese and Pico De Gallo (see recipe below). To serve, fill a fried tortilla with cheese, meat and Pico De Gallo to taste.

Pico De Gallo

  • 2 Tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 of a Medium Onion, diced
  • 1/2 of a Jalapeno Pepper, finely minced
  • 2 Tbsp. Cilantro, chopped
  • 1 small clove Garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tsp. Lemon Juice
  • Salt to taste

Mix all ingredients together and it's ready to serve.
