READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • In large nonstick skillet, saute ground sirloin, onion, garlic and celery over medium to medium-high heat until beef is browned and crumbles (be sure not to have heat too high so you don't burn the garlic); drain fat.
  • Add ground beef mixture to a 5-quart or large slow cooker.
  • Add the bacon and the rest of the ingredients to the crock pot, except for the garnishes; mix well.
  • Cover and cook on low setting for 6-8 hours or on high setting for 3-4 hours.
  • To serve, garnish with any of the following: fresh tortilla strips, tortilla chips, corn chips, shredded cheese, sour cream and green onions.
  • Don't forget to remove the bay leaf.
  • Enjoy!
