HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED:
- 1 1/2 pounds of Ground Sirloin
- 1 Large Sweet Onion – chopped
- 1 large jar of ‘Late July’ Brand – Organic Salsa – Mild – 15 – 16 ounces
3/4 cup of Ketchup
1 Tablespoon of Garlic Powder
- 1 teaspoon of Garlic Salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of Seasoned Salt
- 1 teaspoon of Chili Powder
- 1 teaspoon of Cumin
- 1/2 cup of Brown Sugar
- Velveeta Queso Blanco – 32 ounce package
4 Packages of Tortilla Chips
- 1 can of Dr. Pepper Sweet and Sassy Baked Beans – 16 ounce can – to top
1 package of Shredded Colby Jack Cheese – to top
HERE’S WHAT YOU DO:
Turn a Slow Cooker or Crock Pot to the High setting and place the Queso Blanco in the Crock Pot to melt.
In a large heavy bottom Skillet, place the ground Sirloin, and cook until no pink is visible, and Sirloin is golden brown. Drain any excess fat from the skillet, and add the chopped Onion, and Saute until Onion is browned.
Add the Salsa, Garlic Powder, Garlic Salt, Seasoned Salt, Chili Powder, Cumin, Brown Sugar, and Ketchup. Cook on Medium High until the Taco Meat is bubbly, then turn to low heat, and simmer for 30 – 45 minutes.
When the meat is done simmering, add the Taco Meat to the Crock Pot, and stir well to blend with the Queso – Cheese. Leave in the Crock Pot until Cheese is completely melted, and mixture is hot and bubbly. Turn heat to low and stir well. If the Queso seems too thick, add a little water to thin, and stir well. To serve, top with Dr. Pepper Beans, and Shredded Cheese, and Tortilla Chips on the side.
Makes approximately 16 to 20 – 1/2 cup servings.
NOTE: The ‘Late July’ brand of Organic Salsa has a very good flavor, and the ingredients are well sourced. If you prefer to use another Brand of Salsa, that will work as well. ALSO: If you prefer your Queso with more heat, you can always add a little more Chili Powder, or if you don’t like spicy or hot food, you can add less Chili Powder, and a little more Cumin for the flavor.
