Easiest Crock Pot Taco Meat // Follow Me on Pinterest

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!

  1. I had no idea you could put raw ground meat into the crock pot and it would turn out okay… I’m going to have to try this on busy weekdays.

  3. Do you think if one bought the ingredients for this for dinner tonight but forgot to throw it in the crock pot this morning (oops!) that it would still be good made on the stove top using the same ingredients? But draining the meat of course. I’m so upset I forgot to put it in the crock pot!

  4. Do I need to brown and break up the meat first in a skillet?

    • Hi Katie – Nope! The whole point of this recipe is to reduce the need to cook (and wash extra dishes!). I just toss all the ingredients in the crock pot and let ‘er go! It turns out great every time! Hope that helps! :)

  5. Sounds great – I will try. If I make extra to freeze – what’s the best way to reheat?


    Posted 01/18/15

    • Hi Rachel – I just put the meat in a small saucepan and heat it up over low. Stir it often to keep it from sticking, but it works great. You could also re-heat it in a skillet or frying pan too. If you need, add a tiny bit of water or beef broth.
