Easy Slow Cooker Taco Meat [3 Weight Watchers Points Plus]



This is a great quick recipe and I actually prefer the taste of this over tacos made on the stove. In fact, this is so easy, you can actually put the meat in your slow cooker frozen!! This is also great for taco salad etc. The amount of points to this recipe depends on the type of ground beef you use.


2 lbs frozen ground beef
2 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon paprika
3 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups water
1 teaspoon of better then Bullion Beef Paste

Mix all of the dry spices together in a bowl.  Add the frozen ground beef and the water to your slow cooker.  Add all of the spices except for 2 Tablespoons (reserve those for later).  Add the beef paste.
Start cooking on high for 1 hour until the beef is browned.  Switch to low for an additional 2-4 hours. Drain well and then mix in the 2 tablespoons of reserved spices.  Serve with your favorite taco fixins.

WW points plus for ground beef is as follows:
1/2 cup cooked 75% or 80% or 85% lean ground beef = 4 WW PP
1/2 cup cooked 90% lean ground beef = 3 WW PP
1/2 cup cooked 95% lean ground beef = 2 WW PP

3 Ingredient Slow Cooker Buffalo Ranch Chicken [3 Weight Watcher Points Plus]




I have lightened up the traditional Buffalo Ranch Chicken by using a dry ranch packet and eliminating the butter that is usually in this recipe.  This can be served whole as an entree or you can cook it longer and shred it and make sandwiches or serve it over lettuce.

I made this in my 2.5 quart slow cooker

Serves 4

Ingredients:
4 thawed skinless boneless chicken breasts
1 (17.5 fluid ounce) bottle Franks buffalo wing sauce
1 package of dry Hidden Valley ranch salad dressing mix

Directions:
Combine all of the ingredients and cook on low for 3.5 hours or until throughly cooked.

If you want to eat this as shredded chicken instead, cook the chicken longer until fork tender. Remove the chicken and shred it and then mix it back with the sauce. 
Weight Watchers Points Plus: I have estimated the points plus for this recipe to be 3 points per serving.  [I just calculated the chicken because the wing sauce and ranch packet only add a trivial amount of additional calories etc.]
