Slow Cooker Tacos for a Fast Day

Ever have a day where you just have no idea how you are going to make dinner because you are on the run all day?  I seem to have a lot of those days!  So, I always turn to my slow cooker to save dinner.  I’ve kept taco meat hot in my slow cooker before, but I had never made Slow Cooker Tacos before.  It was a stroke of genius. The meat was tender and flavorful with very little effort needed to make dinner a success. All I had to do was come home, give it a good stir, and put out all the other taco ingredients. Dinner is on the table in less than 5 minutes flat.

Five Minutes and Out the Door with Slow Cooker Tacos

Before I headed out the door, I did something that at the moment, I thought was a little crazy. I had forgotten to cook the meat for tacos so I placed it in my slow cooker raw and mixed in the seasoning. I added a little bit of water just in case, put the lid on, set it to low and ran out the door. I was really hoping that Slow Cooker Tacos turned out well when I got home. And boy did they! The meat was cooked, the seasonings had simmered in all day, and the house smelled fantastic. My hungry family was ready to sit down to dinner for some fabulous Slow Cooker Tacos.

Serve with some tortilla chips or corn chips for a fantastic new take on the classic taco dip.
