Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day – Crock Pot Salsa Verde Beef
(152 calories | *4 WW Freestyle SmartPoints)
I made crock pot salsa verde beef to use in tacos recently.
It was easy and delicious. And a big hit with both Rod and Mom.
This Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Beef has just 3 ingredients: beef, taco seasoning and green salsa.
And is best when it cooks low and slow. So it’s perfect for a busy day.
Skinny on Crock Pot Salsa Verde Beef
To keep it lean I used a rump roast instead of chuck, which is tasty too, but higher in fat.
According to my calculations, each serving has 152 calories, *4 Weight Watchers PointsPlus and *4 WW Freestyle SmartPoints.
In addition to making delicious restaurant quality tacos, this crock pot salsa beef would be delicious in burritos, enchiladas or quesadillas. Enjoy!
