{Mexican Style Beef with Rice} Slow Cooker

I love any good Crock Pot meal. They are great for this busy mama, and this is a great one. It has a lot of flavor and the round steak gets so tender. Its definitely a family favorite!


1 1/2 pound round steak cut into bite size pieces
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 Tbs chili powder
1 Tbs prepared mustard just in your fridge
1 chopped onion
1 beef bouillon cube
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can kidney beans drained


Cut up the uncooked meat and place it in the crock pot. Mix with garlic salt, pepper, chili powder and mustard. Cover with onion, bouillon cube, and tomatoes. Top with beans. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Serve over white rice. I usually always serve with Jasmine Rice cause its my favorite!


{Extra Creamy Crock-pot Hot Chocolate}

Luckily, we had a very white Christmas here in Utah, and my kids have been outside all morning playing in it. Sometimes it’s nice to step away from the store bought hot chocolate mix, and make the good stuff.

1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 (14oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
2 cups milk chocolate chips
6 cups milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

Whisk all of the ingredients in a crock pot and let it warm up and melt all the chocolate chips on low for about 2 hours. Serve with your topping of choice!
