I needed an easy dish, that I could make ahead of time, for times when we have to eat dinner at different times. The crock pot was the logical choice, and works very well for this recipe. My family loves the tacos so much, they request them often!

How to Make Crock Pot Tacos


  1. Add hamburger meat to a skillet with 1/2 cup of chopped onion. When browned, drain off the fat, and add to crock pot.
  2. Add one package of taco seasoning mix to the crock pot.
  3. Add one can of Rotel tomatoes, drained to the crock pot.
  4. Add 1/2 can of refried beans to the crock pot. (Sometimes I will use the whole can, it is a matter of taste. The more refried beans you add, the looser the consistency.)
  5. Stir well, cover and cook on low until warmed through. You can keep the mixture in the crock pot, warm and ready to eat for 3-4 hours.
  6. Warm both sides of each flour tortillas on the stove burner. Only leave the tortilla on the burner for 10-15 seconds, and then turn over. You can use a skillet to warm them as well, but I have always used the burner method. You can warm the tortillas ahead of time and keep in a warmer for an hour or less. But they are best when warmed right before eating.
  7. Add about 1/2 cup of meat mixture to your tortilla, and top with lettuce, tomatoes, onion, peppers, grated cheese, salsa and sour cream as desired.
