Slow-Cooker Picadillo

Serve with: Baked potatoes and mixed green salad. Cook the beef and assemble the other ingredients ahead of time so all that's needed before setting off for the day is to put the pot in its holder and flick the switch. Freeze any leftovers to roll up with cheese in tortillas for quick burritos.
