And it’s easy to make in the crockpot.  Start it in the morning and it’s ready for dinner.

Add rice or tortillas and a salad, and dinner is finished.

We package the leftovers in single serving sizes in ziplock bags and freeze them.

Later you can heat just one, or more, depending on how many people you’re feeding.

6. For a very easy way to shred the beef, use a potato masher and twist while mashing.

Cook 3 cups of rice to go with the beef. To serve, spoon the rice into a bowl and top with the green chile beef.

You don’t have to brown the meat before you add it to the crockpot, but we love the flavor you get when you do.

Instead of rice, you can add the beef to a tortilla and roll it up for a burrito.

We also freeze the leftover rice in single serving ziplock bags.
