Crock Pot Taco Meat

What a week!
I feel like it won't slow down!
and the crazy won't stop until .....
well i don't even know.
if your super busy here is a quick and yummy meal just for you.

Have i ever told you how to make the best taco meat on the face of the planet?
(in my opinion)

Here's what you do
Put 1lb of ground beef or you can do ground turkey
in your crock pot

Dice up 1 onion
and throw it in there too.

If your in a hurry
 like i was the day i made this
toss in 1 pack of taco seasoning 
(I used a little bit more than 1 because i wanted more flavor)
or if you have time you can make your own seasoning
which is probably healthier!

Then set your crock pot on Low for 4 hours
(about halfway through cooking time i will break up the meat so its not in large chunks)
Then enjoy the smells this will fill your house with!

After 4 hours it's done!
Happy tacos!

Or in my case this ...............

What yummy food have you made recently?

1 cup frozen mango's
1 cup plain Greek yogurt

1cup plain Greek yogurt (or you can use vanilla)

And last 1/4 cup of coconut milk 
(or you can almond milk, skim milk, water etc)

Put everything in the blender
