Slow Cooker Salsa Pepper Beef

This is another of those fabulous super-simple crockpot recipes that will have you going back for seconds.  Rich and flavorful, this Mexican fajita inspired dish pairs beautifully with saffron rice and a little sour cream.  I served it with garlic-buttered Italian green beans, whose calm flavor went quite well with the more lively dish.

(I used a bit too much salsa, and have already adjusted the recipe accordingly; you may prefer more or less than I do.)


  • 1 lb beef, sliced thin or cubed
  • ¼ c taco seasoning
  • ½ c chunky salsa
  • ½ onion, roughly chopped
  • ½ c red, orange and yellow bell pepper


  1. Combine beef, taco seasoning and salsa, and mix well.  
  2. Add remaining ingredients.
  3. Can be prepared ahead and frozen.  If frozen, thaw in refrigerator the night before.
  4. Add to crockpot and cook on low 6-8 hours or on high 4-6 hours.
  5. Serve over rice, optionally with sour cream,
