Mexican Beef with Quinoa in Slow Cooker

Updated: Jul 30, 2019

This quick, nourishing and tasty recipe is the perfect family meal or as a dish to prepare during the week when you have limited time! The flavours are rich, but not overpowering, along with loads of packed fibre, protein and complex carbs! This dish will keep everyone satisfied, full and happy! I recommend serving with some sour cream, grated cheese, avocado and tomato salsa and spring onions on top!



Ingredients (serves 4-6)

  • 500gm premium beef mince

  • 1 packet of taco seasoning

  • 1 large jar of enchilada or pasta sauce

  • 1 can black beans

  • 1 cup quinoa

  • 2 tbsp cumin

  • 2 1/2 cups beef stock

  • 1 courgette, 1 cup broccoli, carrots, onions, garlic,

  • 1 x leek, sliced

Method 

  1. Lightly fry the mince in the taco seasoning, chopped onion and garlic in a fry pan.

  2. Chop all veggies and place aside. Add mince, veggies, stock, pasta sauce, beef stock, beans and cumin. Cook on low for  7-8 hours.

  3. Serve with grated cheese, sliced spring onions and sour cream.
