This is one of those great slow cooker recipes that can be used in so many different ways. But our favorite way to serve it is with flour tortillas, rice, beans, cheese, guacamole and other favorite burrito fixings.
It also freezes well, so it’s nice to keep on hand for those busy week nights when you know you won’t have time to cook!
