Can I tell you how happy I am when I don’t have to brown meat in a separate pan?! This trick is so awesome and I’ll be using it again and again with my lean ground meats. Simply put the ground meat in the slow cooker with some seasoning and turn it to low. How easy is that? This is a great recipe if you’re trying to think of something to get in the slow cooker very quickly before you head out for a few hours in the afternoon. It literally takes like 2 minutes. I used my homemade taco seasoning (but you can use the pre-packaged stuff if you prefer). 4 stars.

1. Combine all the ingredients in your slow cooker.
2. Use a spoon to break up the meat.
