This week for Crock Pot Monday I am sharing a simple chili/Mexican type fill that works for so many things.
I have heard the term Haystacks used for many different things. Some are more of a taco or taco salad type dish and others are more chili like. What they all seem to have in common though is a mexican type meat filling layered over other ingredients.
The haystacks my family enjoys is basically a type of chili layered over about anything. We love this as a meat filling for mexican food. It is great used for a taco bar or over rice as burrito bowls. And we also love this over crock pot baked potatoes.
This filling freezes really well and is really very versatile.
- 2 pounds lean ground beef
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2- 8 ounce cans tomato sauce
- 2- 15 ounce cans chili beans
- 2- 10 ounce cans mild enchilada sauce or use homemade enchilada sauce see note below
- Cook beef and onion until beef is browned and onion is tender.
- Place cooked beef in a crock pot and add remaining ingredients.
- Cook on low for 6 hours.
- Serve as a mexican filling for tacos, burritos, or as a topping for potatoes.
