This recipe was originally sent to us by our friend Penny W. who has a blog over at Slightly Squirrelly. This a nice basic recipe that makes a great filling for soft tacos or burritos or a topping over chips for some amazing nachos.
If your enjoy a little spice to your meals you can adjust the ingredients to add a little heat. However, since I was cooking this for my kids, who are not fans of too much spice I kept it on the mild side. There is no additional taco-type seasoning to this recipe, but if you want to add some you are sure welcome to. Either store bought or a homemade taco seasoning mix will work great. Otherwise as is, the recipe is a great low-sodium recipe.
This recipe is easily adapted to a slow cooker freezer meal as well. Just dump all the ingredients into a freezer bag, label and toss in the freezer. To cook just thaw overnight in the refrigerator and follow the cooking instructions in the recipe. Easy!
