We love burritos on low carb tortillas, they're delicious and quite healthy. Here's a slow cook recipe for the burrito meat that is easy and inexpensive.
2 lbs stew beef
2 cans tomato paste
1/2 red bell pepper
4 cloves garlic
2 Tbsp "mexican spices"
1 tsp cocoa powder
1 packet Splenda
1 cup water
Mix together all ingredients. If you don't have a Mexican spice blend, first blend together cumin and chili powder in equal parts. Then sprinkle in cayenne pepper until the heat level seems good to you. Cook on high for 4-6 hours or until meat falls apart easily.
Makes an inexpensive meat perfect for Mexican dishes!

Most of the carbs come from the tomato paste, so shop wisely on that item!
