Slow Cooker Tex Mex Beef

Looking for a delicious freezer meal? This Slow Cooker Tex Mex Beef recipe makes 8 servings! Because it is a slow cooker recipe, it is so easy to put together. You literally throw everything in the slow cooker and you will have a hot meal waiting for you by the end of the day! Save 4 portions for the family or for you to eat during the week and freeze the other 4 portions for a later date!

I used these meal prep containers from Amazon to store the other 4 portions. They are freezeable, dishwasher safe and microwave safe but don't put them in the oven! I already made that mistake once!

Planning your meals does not have to be hard. Freezer meals are great to have on hand when you are starving and are just too busy to cook. No straying off plan and grabbing those snacks in the pantry because you are prepared with healthy nutritious options!

I served this beef with mashed cauliflower, but it would be wonderful over riced cauliflower as well. Don't like cauliflower? That's okay! Serve this with your favorite veggies! You will need 2 and 1/2 servings of Greens per serving.

Hope you enjoy and happy cooking!
