Slow Cooker Ground Beef Tacos Recipe

Slow Cooker Ground Beef Tacos
Yes, you can make ground beef tacos right in the slow cooker and no browning of the meat is needed. The raw hamburger along with various seasonings are placed into the crock pot and cooked on low for several hours. What is great about this recipe is the texture that the tacos have. Chances are you already have most of the ingredients for this recipe on hand. These tacos and are slightly spicy from the cayenne pepper and chipotle powder—both of these ingredients are optional but I really like the nice smoky flavor the chipotle powder gives to this taco meat. The meat can also be used for burritos. Some great toppings are guacamole, lettuce, tomato and cheese. Enjoy.
