Nothing beats biting into a crispy taco shell that’s filled to the brim with this saucy spicy taco meat.  

Slow Cooker Saucy Ground Meat Taco Filling in Tacos

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.

This saucy taco meat is great for serving at get-togethers because guests can help themselves…all they need are some crispy taco shells to put the meat into and toppings like shredded cheese, thinly cut head (iceberg) lettuce, salsa and guacamole.
