Fully Loaded Taco Meat from Real Food Slow Cooker Recipes

Hi, guys!

I’m so excited to share a recipe from Real Food Slow Cooker Recipes, a new ebook by Arsy Vartanian from Rubies & Radishes. I’ve followed Arsy on social media (and podcasts) for year nows, and I love hearing what she’s up to, so I was really excited when she reached out about her new ebook. As you know, I love a good slow cooker recipe, especially ones that are easy, nutritious, and delicious, and she kindly offered to share her recipe for Fully Loaded Taco Meat, which, of course, I am super psyched to try. We love tacos in our house! 🙂 Without further ado, here’s Arsy!

Hi, Carrots ‘N’ Cake readers! I’m so excited that I get to introduce you to my new cookbook, Real Food Slow Cooker Recipes.

There’s nothing better than coming home at the end of the day to a delicious and nutritious meal that required minimal effort, and each one of the 70+ recipes in Real Food Slow Cooker Recipes hits that mark. I wrote this book for people who feel they’re too busy to stick to a healthy diet, or who believe that nourishing food can only come after you’ve spent hours in the kitchen. The truth is, with the right ingredients and a slow cooker, you and your family can enjoy healthy, flavorful meals.


Each recipe is strictly Paleo and Whole30-friendly! No grains, dairy, sugar, natural sweeteners, legumes or alcohol – just real food and flavor. And you can try ALL of them! Use the code CARROTS30 at checkout and get 30% off the ebook!

The recipe I’m sharing with you today is one that I make at least once a week: Fully Loaded Taco Meat! Never buy premade taco seasoning again – make your own and tailor it to your tastes. I hope you enjoy!


Fully Loaded Taco Meat from Real Food Slow Cooker Recipes

Author: Arsy Vartanian

Serves 6


  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon coriander
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste

Cooking Instructions

  1. In a small bowl combine all of the spices.
  2. Add the beef, tomato paste and spices to the slow cooker. Use a spoon to mix up the ingredients and break up the meat.
  3. Cook on low for 4 hours.
  4. Break up the meat some more.
  5. Use a slotted spoon to remove the meat from the slow cooker and serve.

Chef’s tip: You can reserve 2 teaspoons of the taco seasoning and add it in the last 30 minutes of cooking. This extra step isn’t necessary, but it will heighten the flavor of the meat!
