Slow Cooker Taco Pasta


1 pound lean ground beef

salt and pepper

1 bell pepper, chopped

15 ounce can crushed tomatoes

1 cup jarred salsa, I used mild

15 ounce can corn, drained

3 tablespoons taco seasoning, I use this recipe here

2 ½ cups water or low sodium chicken broth, I used one 14.5 ounce can chicken broth plus enough water to total 2 ½ cups

12 ounces shell pasta shapes, whole grain or white

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef and season with salt and pepper. Cook the meat, stirring often, until browned. Transfer beef to slow cooker.

  • Add the bell pepper, crushed tomatoes, salsa, corn, taco seasoning, and broth or water. Stir.

  • Cook on low for 5-6 hours or high for 2-3 hours.

  • Stir in the pasta. Cook on high for 10-20 minutes. Pasta cook time will vary by slow cooker, begin checking for doneness at 10 minutes.

  • Stir in the cheddar cheese and serve.
