– ground beef – onion – green bell pepper – garlic cloves – oregano – cumin – sazon – tomato sauce – dry white wine – raisins

Add the ground beef to a large skillet, break it up, and cook over high heat for 8-10 minutes or until the beef is completely brown. Stir occasionally.

Stir in the onions and peppers and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the onions soften. Add the garlic and cook for 20 seconds. Discard any excess grease.

Transfer the meat mixture to a crockpot along with the remaining ingredients, give it a stir, cover, and cook on high for 3 hours or on low for 6 hours.

Once the 3 or 6 hours are up, uncover, stir, and check for seasoning. Add more salt if needed and enjoy!

Tips and Recipe Variations
