Crockpot Burritoes

Again, I'm sure I've posted this recipe.  Sorry.  But this week, they're giving away a crockpot!!! Now, I LOVE my basic, no bells, no whistles crockpot.  LOVE LOVE LOVE.  I had the two hundred dollar all clad, I had the hundred fifty dollar kitchen aid, I had a who knows how much cuisenhart...all either went back to the store, or to the curb.  The kitchen aid? I took it back to the store THREE TIMES before I called it quits.  The ceramic part kept cracking!!! And no, it wasn't because I was going from burning hot to ice cold.

As long as we're off topic, I'm posting this from the macbook.  Nick put a new...uh, something or another on it...operating system? Anyway.  It's autocorrecting my typing, like the iPad does.  See that? It turned my little p into a BIG P.  HATING THAT.  Anyone know how to turn that off?

Anyway.  So here's my recipe for this entry, crockpot burritos.  Mmmm. PS It just autocorrected burritos.  That just annoys me.  I want it to tell me it's wrong, and let me worry about fixing it.  Cybernet anyone? Ha, it can't figure out what to do about that.  Ironic much?  And also, the scrolling is backwards.  Does that make sense? It probably won't, unless you use a macbook.  I need help ya'll!

1 lb beef roast (I usually use a chuck, because PW says chuck is best.  And I usually have more than a pound, because who sells a pound of roast?)
1 envelope taco seasoning
2 cans refried beans
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
3/4 cup water
Flour tortilla
Fixins of choice (lettuce, cheese, sour cream, salsa, black olives)

Mix first 5 ingredients in a greased crock pot. Cover and cook on low 6-10 hours. Place in flour tortillas with your choice of toppings;roll up, and enjoy :)

So there you go.  I got it online somewhere, tweaked it to my needs, and now I'm using it to try and win free stuff.  Oh, also, I usually cook the meat and taco seasoning and water and tomato sauce for about four hours, then add the beans for the last three or four.  I have no idea why, that's just how I roll.

  1. I'm not sure about the auto correct typing thing, because my macbook doesn't do that! But for the scrolling thing you should be able to fix that in System Preferences. Go there, click Trackpad, and uncheck (or check? depending on what "normal scrolling" is to you) the box that says "scroll direction: natural." That's how I fixed it on mine! I hope that made sense. If not, sorry!
