Source of Recipe
1 cup tomato salsa
3/4 cup tortilla chips, finely crushed
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small fresh green chili, seeded and minced (optional)
1 tablespon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 to 1 1/2 pounds ground beef or ground turkey
1/2 cup shredded low fat cheddar cheese
Combine first 8 ingredients and salt to taste in a bowl. Mix
thoroughly. Add meat and mix until blended. Pat into a loaf or
round shape (depending on your cooker's dimensions) and place on
a rack** in slowcooker. Cook all day on low or 5 hours on high.
Sprinkle shredded cheddar over top of loaf and return lid to cooker.
Cook until cheese melts. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.
** Note about racks: It's been suggested to use a wire rack that
fits the cooker, or to use three canning jar lids to lift up the
meat from the grease that accumulates. Good ideas!
