Slow Cook Them Burritos

Burrito Filling Slow Cooker Style

As much as I love easy meals I don’t do them that often. They’re more of a vacation from my usual tornado-like crazy mess that I make in the kitchen. When I think easy meal I automatically look towards my slow cooker. This particular recipe is even easier because it’s a dump and cook style. No need to saute anything beforehand. You could use this as a burrito or taco filling like I suggest or just eat it like a chili. Do whatever makes you happiest!
