Crock Pot Tacos

IMG_4020

Finally, some crock pot/slow cooker action! Sheesh! It has only been about forever since I dusted mine off, but I will try and be more diligent in utilizing it! This was actually the perfect recipe for today since I got off work around 3 and was able to put the ground hamburger into the crock pot along with my taco seasoning and do other things without having to hover over my oven browning meat! It takes a bit longer due to obvious reasons, but once you try it this way I highly doubt you will do it the stove top rout again! Less dishes, grease splatter, and stress! Woo Hoo!

I was trying to go about this a different way for myself and made mine into lettuce wrap tacos but I was good and didn’t force Mikey to eat them…. he had regular soft tacos….
