HOW TO MAKE SLOW COOKER SMOTHERED FRITOS TACO BOWLS
Step 1: In a large skillet, cook the beef and onions over medium-high heat or until the beef is not anymore pink and the onions are translucent.
Step 2: Drain any excess fat before adding in the taco seasoning and half a cup of water. Stir well, then, remove from the heat.
Step 3: Using a non-stick spray, grease your slow cooker.
Step 4: Add the chilli beans, tomato sauce, and Rotel into the prepared slow cooker.
Step 5: Then, add in the browned beef mixture and thoroughly mix.
Step 6: Cook on high, covered, for about 3 to 4 hours or 5 to 6 hours on low.
Step 7: To serve, add handfuls of Fritos in each serving bowl. Followed by a little layer of rice (but this is optional), top with a large spoonful of the beefy taco mixture, and top it all up with your preferred taco toppings. I highly recommend a freshly squeezed lime on top with fresh cilantro. Have a mouthful. Enjoy!
Substitute the beef with either ground turkey or chicken.
