Trying to eat at home more often? This recipe for Mexican Beef Bowls will be a hit with your family, and it is so simple and easy. It can also be adapted to different diets.
It’s delicious without any toppings, but dairy eaters will love it with cheese and sour cream. Grain-free eaters can omit the rice and eat it more like a chili. You can also adjust the amount of meat. If the budget is tight, cut the amount of beef and increase the beans.
And of course, choose salsa that meets your desired level of heat. We prefer mild, but if you like it hot, go for it! This recipe is very versatile and a great way to use your slow cooker.
