Recipes for simple Mexican meals prepared for a slow cooker include a beef filling for tacos, pork chalupa, creamy Mexican chicken and slow cooked enchilada soup. The beef taco recipe is featured at Mr. Food Test Kitchen, and combines sirloin beef roast with canned diced tomatoes, onion and Mexican seasonings.
The beef taco recipe requires removing the roast from the cooker after 5 hours, shredding the meat with a fork, and cooking the beef for an additional 30 minutes. Spoon the beef filling into flour tortillas and add toppings such as shredded lettuce, cheese and sour cream. Mexican style creamy chicken is an alternative to beef, and this slow cooker recipe combines cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soups with chopped chicken, salsa and spices. After 4 to 5 hours of cooking the mixture on low heat, sprinkle cheese on top and serve as desired.
An easy homemade version of the classic chalupa dinner bowl uses pork loin, pinto beans and canned green chilies. This recipe requires sorting and rinsing dried pinto beans, before putting them into a 6-quart slow cooker. Chicken broth is used for liquid, and the mixture cooks for 8 hours, and then the pork is pulled apart using a fork. Chicken enchilada soup pairs skinless chicken breasts with beans, corn and spices.
