Slow Cooker Taco Meat


I love the versatility of taco meat. You can use it in, of course, tacos, but in addition to that, it makes an excellent filling for enchiladas or burritos, and can turn a lackluster mound of lettuce into a delicious taco salad. Lately, I have been enjoying the wonders of lettuce leaf tacos and really enjoying them; it seems like such a summery meal. I like to top mine with fresh guacamole and a drizzle of queso, the recipe of which is forthcoming. Because I love slow cooker recipes that I can leave alone and let them do their thing while I do mine, I came up with this little gem that I think you will enjoy. Keep your kitchen cool and free up your day while making a meal that the family will thoroughly enjoy.

I do love the idea of filling a lettuce leaf. Thanks for the reminder. Glad you enjoyed your taco meat. I might use mashed chickpeas with avocado toppings.
