-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.
-transfer the meat to the slow cooker and add tomato, cilantro, tomato sauce, 1/4 cup of water, olives and then add the spices.
-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.
