TexMex ingredients and flavors combined with the ground meat of choice make for a quick and easy slow cooker meal. Spice up your next Taco Tuesday with this meat can be served in so many different ways – tacos, enchiladas, salad, lettuce wraps, etc.
The choice of ground meat is up to you. I used lean ground beef but you can use ground pork, ground turkey, ground chicken…seriously whatever you prefer. If you’re vegan or vegetarian then you can swap out the meat for tofu or just double up on the black beans.
I browned my meat first but it’s not a necessary step. Especially if you’re using a lean meat.
For the salsa, use the salsa of your choice. You can even add more salsa if you want but I wouldn’t use more than 20 ounces total. You can even make your own Slow Cooker Salsa. For the taco seasoning, I encourage you to use my homemade taco seasoning rather than using a store-bought packet:
