In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef until fully cooked. Drain any excess fat.
Prepare the Crock Pot:
Grease the inside of your crock pot to prevent sticking.
Combine Ingredients in the Crock Pot:
Transfer the browned ground beef into the crock pot.
Add diced potatoes, taco seasoning, and the undrained diced tomatoes to the crock pot.
Mix everything well to ensure the taco seasoning is evenly distributed.
Cook in the Crock Pot:
Set your crock pot to low heat and cook the mixture for 4-5 hours. The potatoes should be tender, and the flavors well blended.
Top with Shredded Cheese:
About 15-20 minutes before serving, sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top of the casserole.
Cover the crock pot and let the cheese melt and become gooey.
Serve and Enjoy:
Once the cheese is melted and bubbly, the Crock Pot Beefy Potatoes Taco Casserole is ready to be served.
Spoon out generous servings onto plates, and garnish with your favorite taco toppings like sour cream, chopped green onions, or salsa.
Optional: Customize Your Casserole:
Feel free to customize the casserole with additional toppings such as diced avocado, jalapeños, or a drizzle of hot sauce for extra flavor.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The flavors tend to meld and intensify, making it delicious for reheating.
This Crock Pot Beefy Potatoes Taco Casserole is a hearty and satisfying dish that combines the flavors of a taco with the comfort of potatoes. Enjoy this easy and delicious dinner with your family and friends!
