Sunday Supper: Slow Cooker Mexican Beef With Lime Crema and Pinto Beans

Sunday Supper

Cooking projects for people who'd like nothing more than to spend a sunday afternoon surrounded by the wonderful aromas of the kitchen.

Editor's note: Each Saturday afternoon we bring you a Sunday Supper recipe. Why on Saturday? So you have time to shop and prepare for tomorrow.

Offering the ultimate in one-pot cooking, this fall-apart Mexican-style pot roast is prepared in the slow cooker, along with saucy, cowboy-style pinto beans that have been rinsed but not pre-soaked. Once cooked, just wrap the combo up in warm flour tortillas with a dollop of lime crema and enjoy.

Make sure you check in on it periodically, adding additional liquid as necessary, to keep the beans steeping and ensuring they'll be tender in the end.
