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 salt3 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
