What's This?

Crockpot Taco Joes are a staple in our house.  Dump everything in the crockpot in the morning, and flavorful crockpot taco meat is ready when you are!  Forget to defrost your ground beef?  No problem — this works equally well with frozen or defrosted beef.

A lot of people have differing ideas about what constitutes “easy.”  I’ve seen recipes with 20 ingredients plugged as “an easy recipe.”  Ummm, no.  Even old standby “easy” recipes like tacos or spaghetti really take about 20 minutes to get on the table and I’ve mentioned that my children want to eat within 30 seconds of entering our home, so that’s 19:30 seconds too long of a prep time in my house.  I was looking for a taco meat recipe for all our various taco needs that could be ready right when we are and I found it in The Country Cook’s Crockpot Taco Joes.    

This taco meat requires no prep, just dump everything in in the morning

First up, grab a 1 lb. of ground beef, a small can of enchilada sauce and a small jar of salsa.  My family rejects anything “spice” (real or imagined) so I did not add an envelope of taco seasoning, but that would kick it up a notch if that’s what you like.

Next, toss everything in crockpot.  In what turned out to be a happy accident, I did not plan ahead, and therefore had a frozen hockey puck of ground beef to work with, so I wasn’t able to stir it up and it still turned out perfectly.  This recipe honestly worked equally well with the frozen hockey puck vs. when I’ve made it with properly defrosted meat. 

Put it on low for 8 hours and shred some cheese/prep some toppings your crockpot taco meat is ready to roll when you get home.

That’s it!  Chop it up and stir it around a bit before you serve it and it’s ready to go.  This is a very saucy taco meat, so I usually scoop it out with a slotted spoon.  Plate it up and you’re set!  How did this turn out for you?  I’d love to hear in the comments.
