One of the first things I wanted to do was cook!! It worked out well that I was feeling better on Saturday, because I was able to clean the house and do our laundry. I was not up to cooking anything really fancy, so I chose a very easy Crock Pot dinner that I had found on the Weight Watchers message boards.
Here is the complete recipe for Taco Junk.
Like I said, this is an easy recipe. Can't you see the line up of ingredients? They are all in cans or packages.
Cooking the ground beef. I buy the leanest ground beef available at the grocery store. This helped to make this recipe very low in points. If you do not use a really lean meat you will need to recalculate the points.
Mix all the canned and packaged ingredients together. This was the easiest part. I drained each canned items except for the diced tomatoes. That provided the liquid necessary, so that it did not burn or dry out while cooking.
Then drain the cooked ground beef and add it to the Crock Pot. Remember to let the meat cool if you are adding it to a cold Crock Pot, you don't want it to crack and break.
All done. I ate 1/2 cup which was only 2 points! Jon ate the mixture in a tortilla and I ate mine with tortilla chips and salsa. This was so yummy. We had a lot of leftovers. This is the perfect dish to make for Fall.
