    SB6's Note:

    I would make this on those nights when everyone was coming & going at different times. We brown the beef before slow-cooking to add color and enhance flavor. This mixture is also great over baked potatoes with your favorite toppings. Got this recipe from Southern Living May 2006.

      My family enjoyed these tacos although we all thought that they looked, smelled, and tasted more like chili than tacos. I'll bet you're right, this would be great served over baked potatoes. I love the ease of crock pot recipes and this one was definitely easy. A previous reviewer stated that this was saucy, so I added only 1 c. of beef broth. I was generous with my cumin and black pepper measurements because we love both of them. Also, I thought that this recipes was screaming for chiles, so I roasted 3 fresh chile peppers from my garden and used those instead of the bell peppers. I cooked this on "high" in my crock pot for 4 hours and the meat was very tender. I took the lid off of the crock pot during the last half hour of cooking to allow some of the extra liquid to cook down. I served this in corn tortillas with: shredded lettuce, 4-cheese Mexican cheese blend, sour cream, chopped onions and tomatoes, and salsa. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!

      This made us a nice dinner last night. I loved the ease of the recipe and the meat was very tender. It was very saucy so next time I would cut down the ingredients for the sauce. Made for Ausie Swap #38.
