Crock Pot Taco Meat with Black Beans and Corn {Freezer Style}

IMG_2069

Who loves having a meal in 15 minutes or less? The next time you find a great sale on ground chuck or your favorite meat, stock up and make this easy crock pot meal that can be divided into several meals. Adding beans and corn is a frugal way to stretch your meat budget {especially if you’re using grassfed or organic} and it’s a great way to boost nutrition.

I start a pound in the crock pot on low for a couple hours. If you’re browning more than a pound, crock longer and make sure it’s no longer pink. You can add water to the meat if you’re going to be away from the house. This helps to keep the meat moist, break down the protein and make finer ground beef like Taco Bell. I use a potato masher to break up clumps and make finer also. Drain the beef and rinse in hot water to omit fat.

Rinse a can of black beans and corn in colander. This reduces sodium by forty percent.

Add this to your meat and allow to completely cool.  Add storebought taco seasoning without MSG or approximately 2 tablespoons homemade seasoning. Meanwhile, label your quart freezer bag and using a large measuring spoon add your taco meat mixture to the bag. Squeeze air out and seal. Freeze for future tacos, taco salad, burritos, enchiladas, chili, taco dip, quesadillas, chimichangas, nachos grande, taco muffins, taco pizza, taco braid, and tacquitos.
