3 Ingredient Crock Pot Beef Tacos

Hi everyone!  I've spent the last 2 weeks cuddling with the most precious baby ever (I might be just a little biased), and even as I'm writing this post, she's sleeping peacefully on my chest.  It's the most incredible feeling in the world to have a baby--my baby--cuddling with me.  I'm so in love with her!

While I'm spending time with Summer, I have some great blogger friends who will be sharing recipes with you.  Today, my friend Carrie is sharing a recipe that anyone can enjoy--especially us new moms.  These tacos look delicious and I'm sure I'll be using this recipe often!

Hello all!  I am Carrie and you can typically find me over at Frugal Foodie Mama sharing my budget friendly recipes and my anecdotes about my life as a stay-at-home mama. 
But today I am over here visiting with my good friend Melissa as she spends time with her little one.

My daughter is now 17 months old, but I do vividly remember those first few months after bringing her home... a tired, blurry wonderful mess of pure bliss and exhaustion. ;)
So today, I am sharing with you all one of my most easiest, delicious Crock Pot recipes that you would literally have no problem throwing together even on less than 3 hours of sleep...

My 3 Ingredient Crock Pot Beef Tacos!
Yes, just 3 ingredients, folks.  
No chopping.
No pre-cooking.
Just dump it all in, mix, and walk away. 
Easy, peasy! :)

3 Ingredient Crock Pot Beef Tacos

by Frugal Foodie Mama
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 5-6 hours
Ingredients (12 tacos)
  • 1 lb of beef
  • 1 envelope of taco seasoning
  • 1 10 oz can of tomatoes and green chiles (like Rotel)
Just dump all 3 ingredients in your Crock Pot, mix, and cook on Low for 5-6 hours.

If you can, stir every couple of hours to break up the ground beef. But if you are not home, you can just break up the meat into smaller chunks right before serving.

Serve with taco shells and/or flour tortillas and your favorite taco toppings.

This recipe is ALWAYS a crowd pleaser with my family from my almost 15 year old son to baby girl.  Plus, you can easily double this recipe if you need to feed a larger crowd.  In fact, I did just that when I made these while we were at the beach last week! ;)
You can also use a pound of chicken breasts in this recipe instead of the ground beef.  Just shred the chicken with two forks before serving! 

I hope you all will stop by and visit on the blog or any of my various social media outlets!  All the links are below to make it super easy for you. ;)
Thank you for having me over, Melissa!

  Hello all! I am Carrie and I blog over at Frugal Foodie Mama about my life as a stay-at-home mom to a toddler and a teenager, my family's journey to become a little more eco-responsible everyday, and how I still manage to stay a foodie on our one income budget.  Please stop on over and say hi! 


  1. Thank you for having me over, Melissa! :) Enjoy your little one. <3

  2. Sounds like a recipe I need to try! Thanks for sharing, Carrie!
