Slow cooker Spicy Ground Beef Taco Meat is such a great idea and this is a perfect way to make taco meat for Weekend Food Prep! The ground beef browns in the crockpot, and you can use this delicious spicy beef in tacos, burritos, or taco salad!
I know we’re now in the age of the Instant Pot, but today I want to remind you about Slow Cooker Spicy Ground Beef Taco Meat because this is a recipe that changed my life. When I discovered you could put raw ground beef into the slow cooker with spices and hot sauce, and a few hours later (without much tending to it at all) you’d have perfectly cooked spicy ground beef, it rocked my world!
This is one of my most-used recipes, and I use it over and over again to make taco meat for Weekend Food Prep! I put the meat into one-cup containers and freeze it, then pull one out whenever that Taco Salad Craving hits me. Even when you’re having a busy weekend, you can throw some ground beef in the slow cooker on Sunday night and you’ll have at least one dinner ready for the week!
I mostly use spicy ground beef for Taco Salad with whatever ingredients strike my fancy, but you can use this meat for tacos, burritos, or even beef enchiladas. My version of Slow Cooker Spicy Ground Beef Taco Meat is pretty spicy, so if you’re cooking this for kids, I’d cut down on the hot sauce a little, but I promise, once you try this you will be hooked on this way of making taco meat!
