This is a recipe that will knock your socks off! Needs to be refrigerate overnight. It's a good change from bacon or sausage for breakfast or brunch. It is also good served rolled in warmed flour tortillas for lunch or dinner.

- 1⁄2 cup rotel diced tomatoes with mild green chilies, juice drained
- 1 teaspoon crushed red chili pepper flakes
- 1 tablespoon Tabasco sauce
- 1⁄2 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 cup canned diced tomatoes with juice
- 2 lbs top round beef (cut into 4 or 5 large pieces)
- In a large, heavy pan with a lid, over medium heat, sauté onions, Ro-tel, red chili flakes, Tabasco, black pepper and cumin, adding a little water only as needed to keep the mixture from sticking.

This is so good! I made this for a burrito filling. Everyone liked it very much. I like how simple and easy this recipe is. The next day I put it all into the crockpot and set it to warm. We had a nice dinner waiting for us. I think leaving it overnight really lets the flavors come together. I didn't measure the diced tomatoes, but just used the whole can.
