Beef simmered with garlic and peppers in a thick tomato sauce makes for a warm and satisfying dinner. A slow cooker turns a less expensive cut of meat into a flavorful stew. Serve it in flour tortillas or spoon over rice.

    1. I've made this many, many times. I love all the flavors. We eat it over rice or with tortillas. 2. Yes there is a lot of juice. I skip the broth and flour. The flour doesn't do enough to thicken it up and you are just adding carbs for no reason. The meat makes plenty of juice. 3. I've followed the directions and browned and sauted everything and I've also just thrown it all in the crock pot and let it go. Honestly it tastes the same. That's why I love crock pots!

    I used Gardein Homestyle beefless tips to make this recipe vegetarian. Thumbs up from the family,

    I found this recipe in a desperate attempt to do something with the roast in our freezer in time for (surprise!) dinner guests. Everyone really liked it. It did have a lot of juice, almost more like a stew than a taco filling. We used Mexican oregano instead of usual, since we had it on hand. Also used potato flour instead of wheat flour for less gluten and more authentic Southwest; it was good!

    My husband is very Mexican and I can never make any Mexican dish to satisfy him. This is probably one of the first meals he has liked. Thank you Martha.

    Pleasantly surprised by this! To avoid browning anything I set slow cooker to high while empty. Instead of broth added veggie BetterthanBuillon (Costco). 2t of that + 1.5C water first to go in. Next smashed garlic + half can tomato paste instead of diced. Then added all herbs & spices. Instead of chili used chipotle & instead of flour used 2t cornstarch. Let that sit unmixed while chopped veggies. Mixed into thin paste before adding onions & 1 lb frozen stew meat w/ salt then diced bell peppers.

    I like this recipe however I agree too much sauce. I forgot the chicken broth one time and it turned out more like the picture and just perfect. I also used more jalapenos!

    Great slow-cooker recipe. Good flavors, but may leave in jalapeno seeds next time. Served in flour tortillas with shredded sharp cheese, sour cream & salsa. Half recipe great for 2 people with leftovers.

    I like extra spice, so I was generous on the seasoning and added an extra half jalapeƱo to kick it up a notch. Nothing wrong with the original recipe though, it worked beautifully! Delicious tacos I will definitely make again.

    This one was great, it had too much liquid to serve as tacos, so I mixed up some corn starch to thicken and it made a great stew on a cold snowy night. Fried up some corn tortilla strips and topped with cheese. Will make this one again, but may use pork instead of beef, think it would be good with either.
