When it starts getting cool outside, it is a good time for crock pot dinners. It only takes a few minutes in the morning to make the preparations and then you have a hot, delicious dinner ready to go when you get home.

 

Yield

12 servings

 

Ingredients

  • 1 (2-pound) London broil; chicken can be substituted
  • 1 (1.25-ounce) package taco seasoning mix
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chiles
  • 1 (16-ounce) can fat-free refried beans
  • 12 (8-inch) whole wheat flour tortillas
  • 1½ cups (6 ounces) reduced fat shredded Mexican cheese
  • 1½ cups chopped plum tomato
  • ¾ cup fat-free sour cream

 

Preparation

  • Trim fat from meat; rub seasoning mix over both sides of meat. Place meat in an electric slow cooker coated with cooking spray; add onion, vinegar, and green chiles. Cover with lid; cook on low-heat setting for 9 hours.
  • Remove meat from slow cooker, reserving cooking liquid; shred meat with two forks. Combine meat and reserved cooking liquid; stir well.
