Ingredients

  • 3 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)
  • 1 Anaheim chile, chopped (1/3 cup)
  • 3/4 cup chili sauce
  • 1/2 cup mole sauce (from 9-oz container)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce (from 7-oz can)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 18 Old El Paso™ flour tortillas for soft tacos & fajitas (6 inch; from two 8.2-oz packages)
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 oz)
  • 3 medium tomatoes, chopped (1 1/2 cups)

Steps

  • 1
    In 12-inch skillet, cook beef, onion and Anaheim chile over medium heat about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown; drain.
  • 2
    In 3- to 4-quart slow cooker, mix beef mixture, chili sauce, mole sauce, chipotle chiles, cumin and salt.
  • 3
    Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6 to 7 hours.
  • 4
    To serve, spoon 1/3 cup beef mixture onto each tortilla; top with cheese and tomatoes. Roll up tortillas. Beef mixture will hold on Low heat setting up to 2 hours; stir occasionally.

  • To save on fat and calories, use ground turkey breast instead of ground beef. You'll save 7 grams of fat and 50 calories per serving.
  • For taco meat with a kick, use half ground beef and half spicy chorizo sausage.
  • Carry out the Mexican theme of your menu with bowls of black beans, Spanish rice, tortilla chips and salsa.
  • Mole sauce is a rich, spicy and slightly sweet Mexican sauce. Look for it with the Mexican ingredients in your supermarket. If it's unavailable, enchilada sauce is a good substitute.
