How To Make Crockpot Taco Casserole
Cook Beef | In a pan, you will brown ground beef until no longer pink. Add in your onion and garlic. How long to cook ground beef depends on what temperature setting you use. I normally cook ground beef over medium-high heat and brown a pound of ground beef within 5-8 minutes.
Hashbrowns | In a bowl add your hash browns, taco seasoning, cheese soup, and shredded cheese. Add the hashbrown mixture to the crock pot.
This is one of the easiest ground beef slow cooker recipes and is perfect for busy weeknights and an easy recipe for new cooks.
