If you need more tacos in your life, I mean who doesn’t? This pork salsa taco recipe is a family favorite. It checks all of the boxes of a quick and easy meal made in the crock pot. We love it.

Make extra meat and use for leftovers – in a quesadilla for lunch, on a salad, over rice – the options are endless. And you can easily use chicken instead of pork.

Use the meat for lunches too

I buy pork tenderloin at Costco, when it goes on sale if possible. We divide the pork 4-5 portions, drop into a freezer bag, and freeze. When it’s time for tacos – I take the pork from the freezer that’s already portioned in a meal size for my family. All I have to do is add it to the crockpot with a jar of salsa in the morning and basically dinner will cook on its own.
