The nights seem crazy busy these days with two events/activities happening on some evenings. And these are the nights I need to have supper ready and on the table early.
I’ve made this dish quite a few times and I love the smokiness the cumin provides and hint of heat from the jalapeno peppers. Like any meat in the slowcooker, if you cook this too long it will lose it’s tenderness, so I’ve learned to keep it at 4-5 hours max. Also add your bacon at the end so it doesn’t get soft.
Serve it with mashed potatoes or buttered egg noodles and a variety of toppings. The toppings (listed in the recipe) pair so nicely with the flavours of the meat. My kids love it all except the beans lol.
