When I first saw this Mexican Beef recipe, I knew it would be a hit with our family! We love Mexican food. In fact, you will find that I always have on hand flour tortillas, sour cream, cheese and salsa. I can whip up a Mexican style meal in a jiffy in most instances. Well, this one was really good! Easy, too! I originally posted this recipe in Week 5 of the Crockpot Freezer Meals. This is finally updated with pictures and opinions! Opinions: I, of course loved it. It would’ve been better with some guacamole on top though! Kids, even the picky ones were raving over how wonderful it was! Husband was pleased as well. Definitely a family pleaser!
