This is a great recipe- it’s very quick to throw together in the slow cooker, but the end result is a really delicious Mexican inspired dish which is very versatile- It’s lovely just with rice, wrapped in a tortilla, or put into an Old El Paso stand ‘n’ stuff tortilla, topped with cheese and oven baked!
