Crock Pot Carne Asada Tacos

Hello! Sorry I have been gone for so long, but now I’m back and ready to get back on the food train! Hope you all are having a great summer, and I have seen by the looks on some children’s faces (sad look) that school is getting ready to start. However, that means it’s time for some fall like meals and the crock pot is just one way to go! This recipe has a great balance of spice and sauce…I absolutely love this dish! I will definitely be making this again! Hope you enjoy!

2 lb. beef chuck roast

2 Tbsp garlic powder

salt and pepper (to taste)

flour tortillas (preference is yours)

Toppings: (optional)

This is where we pulled (shredded) the beef apart…set it in another bowl and spoon some of the sauce over the beef (add as much sauce as you like, discard the rest), I got too excited, I forgot the pic! Any way, place your selected amount in the tortilla and top with your choice of toppings!

Here is the final masterpiece! Mmm! Arriba!

Chili & Taco Seasoning

I came across a serious problem last night while making chili. I had the beef cooked, the tomatoes and the tomato sauce added and when I went to my spice cabinet, I noticed the chili¬†seasoning was¬†missing! I usually make up my own chili¬†by¬†adding some spices and go on about my business, but I had decided that since it was such a long day, that I would just add the packet to my chili and let it simmer. Boy was I wrong! I “googled” a chili seasoning recipe and voila, I found a few of them, mixed up my own and¬†it was a little spicy, but definitely tasty! You can adjust it to your liking but this is how we like it! Hope you enjoy it!

Makes: 2/3 cup

Use: 1-2 Tbsp seasoning per 1 pound of ground beef (adjust to your liking)

Here’s what you’ll need:

chili and taco seasoning

 4 Tbsp chili powder

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1 tsp dried oregano

2 tsp paprika

2 Tbsp ground cumin

3 tsp sea salt

3 tsp black pepper

 Directions:

In a small bowl, combine chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, crushed red pepper flakes, cayenne pepper, oregano, ground cumin, sea salt, and black pepper. Store in an air-tight container at room temperature.
