Ingredients

  • 1 lb extra-lean ground beef
  • 3 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup diced yellow onion
  • 1 poblano pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 zucchini, diced
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chile powder
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 8 soft corn tortillas
  • 3 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Preparation

  1. Mist a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat on medium-high. Add beef and cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 3 minutes.
  2. Mist a 3- to 3 1/2-qt slow cooker with cooking spray. Add beef, tomatoes, onion, poblano, zucchini, chile powder and cumin; stir to combine. Cover and cook until onion softens, 2½ hours on high or 5 hours on low.
