Slow-Cooker Green Sauce Beef

I've been making this for years and it never fails to satisfy. A simple "set it and forget it" meat recipe that's great for burritos, tacos, fajitas and even soup.

Slow Cooker Green Sauce Beef

2lb. Tri-tip roast
28oz. can mild green enchilada sauce
4oz. can diced green chilies
2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. black pepper
½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp. dried oregano
Chopped cilantro, optional

Place roast in crock pot. Add all remaining ingredients. Cook on high about 6 hours (or low about 8 hours).

These are great for green-sauce burritos with sharp cheddar cheese. Wrap meat and cheese in flour tortillas. Line them up in a baking dish. Spoon green sauce over the top with a little more cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

(NOTE: if you prefer chicken instead, this same recipe is delicious using either Jack cheese or Monterey Jack for the burritos. Yum!!)
