Slow Cooker Taco Meat Version 2.0

I’m a big fan of taco night. Granted, it’s not real Mexican taco night, but it’ll do. Well-seasoned ground beef, cooked slow all day, soaking up flavor after flavor. Nothing fancy. No fine dining here. Just tasty tacos or taco salads. Perfect on a cold night and nothing could possibly be easier to make than slow cooker taco meat.
Slow Cooker Taco MeatI prefer to use my homemade taco seasoning instead of the packets you get in the store. I like to be able to control the amount of salt and making it myself gives me that chance.

We’re both big fans of Mrs. Renfro’s salsas, and in particular the peach-flavored salsa. It adds a nice mellow sweetness to this slow cooker taco meat. For a nice kick, try Mrs. Renfro’s Mango Habanero salsa. It’ll wake you up!
