This recipe is Whole30 compliant with homemade taco seasoning (recipe below) and home canned salsa, but you can sub out a taco seasoning packet and a basic tomato salsa of choice.
With only 6 ingredients that you probably have in your pantry, it comes together fast and you can just leave it alone to cook for 6-7 hours.
Who doesn’t love that when your spending the day either indoors or outdoors with your favorite people? And it makes the house smell sooo good!
Serve it with tortillas and favorite toppings or for Whole30-ers, serve as a base for Mexi-Bowls with Cauliflower Rice and slaw. Make it easy on yourself and cook up a bag of Trader Joe’s frozen cauliflower rice. Or use this recipe and make your own.
Topping everything with this Smoky Ranch Dressing brings it to the next level.
It’ll be a winner, I guarantee it!
