Slow-Cooker Beef-and-Bean Burritos

Yield: 12 servings
Source: Cooking Light, JANUARY 1997
Comments from a PA Kitchen: We loved these, and anything that comes out edible in the slow cooker gets props from me these days. :) I made my own taco seasoning (from a recipe on allrecipes.com) instead of using the pkg stuff b/c it gives my husband a migraine (MSG). We ate these leftover as tacos too, on warmed soft corn tortillas. Truthfully, unless you like them, you don't really need the beans. Can hardly taste them anyway.

INGREDIENTS:

1 (2-pound) London broil
1 (1.25-ounce) package taco seasoning mix
Cooking spray
1 cup 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) fat-free flour tortillas
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 1/2 cups chopped plum tomato
3/4 cup fat-free sour cream

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. 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.
  2. Warm beans and tortillas according to package directions. Spread 2 tablespoons beans down the center of each tortilla. Spoon a heaping 1/3 cup meat mixture on top of beans. Top each with 2 tablespoons cheese, 2 tablespoons tomato, and 1 tablespoon sour cream; roll up.
