Dottie's Carne Guisada

Oh my goodness! Doesn't that look Delicious with a capital "D"! This photo was taken from Gerri's blog at Less of Me Medifast Journey whose blog has always been a personal favorite of mine. She always seems to find the BEST recipes. Some of her current recipes may need a little bit of tweaking to fit the Medifast plan, but this is one I already ran through Nutrition Support at My Medifast and it is definitely on plan. Currently, this particular recipe is featured on her blog so go check her out and show her some support during her weight loss journey! I personally plan on making quite a few meals from her blog in the future! This one will be on my menu next week! There are two ways you could make this recipe. Either by a dutch oven or crock pot. I plan to use my handy dandy crock pot like Gerri did. I love crock pot recipes and they are perfect for when you have a busy day and just don't have the time to stick around a hot stove. Throw that sucker in the crock pot and by the end of the day you will have a scrumptious meal! Also, I know the pic can be a little misleading but leave out the sour cream and guacamole! Enjoy the recipe!
