    2 lbs flank steak
    1 yellow onion, chopped
    1 green bell pepper, chopped
    1 red bell pepper, chopped
    1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped

    for spice rub:
    2 tsp chili powder
    1 tsp cumin
    1/4 tsp onion powder
    1/4 tsp garlic powder
    1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp lack pepper


I use small bell peppers, or even half of a large pepper. I also like to finish the meat with a squirt of lime juice and fresh cilantro, to give it a even more flavor.


Mix together all the ingredients for the spice rub. Rub all over the flank steak--it looks like a lot but use it ALL! Place your steak at the bottom of your crock pot. Cover it with the chopped onions, bell peppers, and jalapeno. Turn the heat on LOW and cook for 8 hours.

Remove from crock pot and shred with a fork. Feel free to return to the pot and allow shredded meat to reheat in the juices left behind.

Serve with corn tortillas, avocado slices, cilantro, salsa, sour cream, or whatever other things you like on tacos. (Not included in calorie count.)
