another great freezer meal-crockpot recipe from saving your dinero.
1 London Broil or top round roast (about 2 lbs)
1 diced onion
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons whole peppercorns
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 (8 oz) cans tomato sauce
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce – Use just 1 pepper!! (It’s in a can.)
1 ½ teaspoon chili powder (you can adjust this according to your taste)
Add all the above ingredients into a freezer bag.
When you are ready to cook the meal, dump the contents of the bag into the crock pot and cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 6-7 hours Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 6-7 hours.
When the meat is cooked, you will need to strain the juices and add the juice back to the slow cooker. (You want to remove the peppercorns and onions.) Shred the meat and add back to the juice in the slow cooker for about 30 minutes. This is one of our favorite recipes. My kids eat it as long as we have leftovers.
* If you like the taste of chipotle but not the spiciness, you can remove the seeds.
You will also need:
16 burrito sized flour tortillas
Anything else you like on burritos – cream, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, etc.
We also like to add Cilantro Lime Rice to our burritos. All you need to do is make some white rice and add lime juice, cilantro, and salt.
