Sports watching season has arrived at my house, in fact I don’t think it ever left. It seems to be one eternal round. One sport starts and another one ends. Anyone that knows the men in my life know they love their sports. I’m not much of a sports watcher but I watch enough to know that one of the most important sporting events of the year is coming soon and I know my boys will be watching. And whenever my boys watch a big sporting event, whether it be in person or on the TV, having some good things to eat near by is essential. I may not know much about sports but I can handle the food end of watching sports, no problem! For me, sports is all about the food.
Today I’ve joined with Old El Paso™ to put together the perfect recipe to spice up your Game Day. Slow Cooker Green Chile Baby Back Ribs will make everyone happy. The sports watchers will love because they are delicious and I love them because they are easy!
To start with, I headed to my neighborhood Albertson’s to pick up some Old El Paso taco seasoning and green chile enchilada sauce along with some fresh cilantro, jalepeno peppers, onion and some baby back ribs. Albertsons had everything I needed.
I love using my slow cooker for this recipe not only because it’s easy but you get tender, fall off the bones ribs when you cook them in the slow cooker. I used the Old El Paso taco seasoning as a rub for the ribs. Just sprinkle over both sides of the ribs and then pat it in.
Place the ribs in the slow cooker and cover with a mixture of the Old El Paso Green Chile Enchilada Sauce, onion, jalapeno, cilantro and some cumin. Then just let them cook away. I cooked them on high for about 5 hours. When the meat pulls away from the ribs, it’s ready to go.
I reserved some of the sauce to use to drizzle over the top of the ribs when I served them.
My boys love their ribs and I love how easy these are to prepare. Just slice in between each of the bones for individual ribs.
