  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 4 cups diced potatoes
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar or Mexican blend)


  1. Brown the Ground Beef:
    • In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef until fully cooked. Drain any excess fat.
  2. Prepare the Crock Pot:
    • Grease the inside of your crock pot to prevent sticking.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Store Leftovers:
    • Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The flavors tend to meld and intensify, making it delicious for reheating.
