Crock Pot Picadillo

This recipe is by far my favorite type of taco meat. I am not a huge meat fan but I could eat this on its own. I am making this tomorrow for the Seahawks game! I can't wait to show my parents this blissful concoction. 


-2 pounds of lean ground beef
-1 cup of minced onion
-1 cup diced bell pepper (I like red)
-3 cloves garlic, minced
-1/4 cup minced cilantro
-1 small diced tomato
-8oz can tomato sauce
-1/2 to 1 cup of pimento stuffed green olives
-1/4 tsp garlic powder
-1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
-2 bay leaves
-salt&pepper to taste
-Brown the meat in a skillet on medium heat and season with salt. Then once the meat shows no redness, drain the grease.
-add onions, garlic and bell pepper to the meat in the skillet and cook for another 3-4 minutes.

-transfer the meat to the slow cooker and add tomato, cilantro, tomato sauce, 1/4 cup of water, olives and then add the spices.
-set slow cooker on high for 3 to 4 hours.
-discard bay leaves before eating.

You'll have a good amount of leftovers if only making it for two! But that's all the better.

I must give credit to for supplying me with this recipe! :]
