When you don’t have time to fuss after a long day to get dinner on the table, with very little preparation in the morning you can have this delicious and easy Mexican Slow Cooker Pork Tacos with Rice meal waiting to eat almost as soon as you walk in the door.
With the popularity of slow cooker meals still going strong, I have to believe that the reason everyone loves them so much is that (for the most part) they’re super simple, and not at all intimidating for the home cook to master.
Depending on the recipe, some slow cooker meals require forethought and preparation time in the morning. Who wants to commit to that on a busy weekday morning when it’s hard enough to get the kids fed and ready for school, and yourself dressed and out the door for work?
It’s the slow cooker “dump” recipe that will come to your rescue, because the only preparation you’ll encounter is assembling the ingredients from the pantry and fridge, and then adding them one by one to the slow cooker to simmer the day away while you’re off doing other things!
You’ve totally got this, Dad!
