I’m all about easy in the kitchen and this crock pot taco meat is no different. The slow cooker does all of the work and before I know it, dinner is served.
In addition to easy recipes, I am also a big fan of batch cooking. Batch cooking allows me to save time AND ensure that we are eating healthy, nourishing meals, even when our schedules might dictate otherwise. This recipe was designed for batch cooking and it freezes beautifully. New to batch cooking? Check out my post “Batch Cooking: Cook A Lot Now, Save Time Later“.
This flavorful taco meat is great for just about anything – salads, tacos, burritos, scrambled eggs, or even just plain with some diced avocado on it. Yum! It is great for potlucks and the Superbowl (or any other gathering where you need to feed a lot of people at once).
I love to do half bison and half beef in this recipe, but you could do all of one or the other and it will be delicious. This recipe also has my husband’s stamp of approval as a keeper. 🙂
Shout out to my friend Suzanne from Strands of My Life for shooting the photo for this recipe!
