Recipe: Saucy crockpot taco meat

This Crockpot Taco Meat is slow cooked to saucy perfection. Not too dry, not too drippy and all of the right spices to make taco night something to celebrate.

One of the easiest weeknight meals just became even easier! Making taco meat in the crockpot takes a bit of time but requires virtually no attention.

The slow cooked ground beef becomes so tender and flavourful, with a unique luxurious texture. It’s not too dry, nor is it too wet…no one likes an extra drippy taco!

However, most importantly the depth of flavour in this taco meat is second to none. The warm taco spices mingle with the ground beef and prepare your mouth for the brief hit of spicy heat.
