Crock Pot Taco Bowls

by Laura

Swap your usual tortilla out on taco night for a bowl and enjoy these Crock Pot Taco Bowls. This is just another tasty way to change up your regular taco night.

The meat and bean mixture simmers in the slow cooker all day the achieve the ultimate flavor. It includes your usual chili type ingredients with one you don’t usually see – unsweetened cocoa powder. Then the meat mixture gets served over rice. You can use any kind of rice you like with these – white rice, brown rice, or even cilantro lime rice or Spanish rice.

Frito corn chips are essential for these Taco Bowls. Not only do they add a nice salty corn flavor but also some crunch. Lastly, you top these bowls off with your favorite taco toppings. We like to include cheese, salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.
