Slow Cooker Taco Meat

Nothing beats biting into a crispy taco shell that’s filled to the brim with this saucy spicy taco meat.  It’s so incredibly delicious and tastes as good if not better than tacos at a restaurant!

Saucy taco meat and crispy taco shells are a match made in heaven.

I like to make this taco meat with a combination of ground beef and ground pork, and brown it with onions before adding it to the slow cooker.

Then add some basic ingredients, let it slow cook for about 4 hours, spoon it into crispy taco shells, eat and then repeat.  It’s so good.  Leftover taco meat freezes up nicely too.

So let’s check out the ingredients.
