I am always trying to figure out easy Mexican dishes, as well as meals that can be made quickly or in the crockpot. This recipe fits the bill for all 3 of those requests. I make this in the crockpot, but you could easily put this in a pot and cook on medium-high for 30 minutes or so and it would be just as good.
