The Rotel and picante sauce give the meat a delicous, spicy flavor. Cooking it in the crockpot really melds the flavors together. This is an easy dinner for Tex-Mex food lovers.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown ground beef.
  2. Drain off any fat.
  3. Add Rotel and picante sauce.
  4. Cook on low in crockpot for 2 to 3 hours, or until most of the liquid is gone.
  5. Add cheese shortly before serving.
  6. (This causes the meat to hold together.).

This is my first time on recipe zaar and I made another one of your recipes today along with this recipe. This is great too! Thank you for an easy lunch. I had guests over for lunch and we ate this as a taco salad. Everyone loved it. Thanks again, Juenessa.
