2 lbs ground beef (frozen is fine)
1.5 cups of diced tomatoes with juice (or one 14.5 oz can)
1 cup mild green chilis, diced (or one 7 oz can) (Optional)
1 small onion, diced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1.5 teaspoons sea salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1.5 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Place all ingredients in a slow cooker.
Cook for 2-4 hours on HIGH until the meat is completely brown. Checking it once or twice to give it a stir and to break up the meat. If it finished cooking before you need it, turn the crock pot down to LOW or WARM until you’re ready to eat.
If you are planning ahead, you can cook the taco meat on LOW for 6-8 hours.
Happy Wednesday Everyone! Its a new year and new month. So therefor it time for another new recipe. This month I’m showing you all a quick Taco meat recipe. Lately the crockpot has become my friend. I have been using it at least once a week.
Specially when I have to work in the morning and get off at 5:30pm. When I get off at 5:30pm I have to hurry and run. To get baby girl from daycare. Then we are headed off to home. When we get home at almost 6pm. Which baby girl has no patinces’s to wait for dinner to be cook. So therefor having the food ready in the crockpot. Ready for us to eat is prefect.
As you can see this recipe is super easy to make. Which if you have been reading my blog for sometime now. Then you already know that I love easy recipe. I made this recipe last week before work. I didn’t have the green chilis pepper this time. So I made the recipe with out it. Which the meat still turned out amazing.
We ate this one Thursday night. On Friday I took the leftover with me to work and had a good amount of co-worker asking me. What I was eating do to it looked and smelled good.
Linking up with A Labour of Life
HAVE A GREAT WEDNESDAY!
