Kids are back in school, which means it never hurts to have a good crock pot recipe to rely on when things get hectic. This Crock Pot Pork Taco Bowl recipe has been a huge hit with my entire family for many years, and it is a weeknight staple in our home for evenings when I just don’t have time to cook. And, as an added bonus, this recipe makes a very generous amount, so you can almost certainly count on leftovers to eat the next day or freeze to enjoy later.

One kitchen gizmo that I am always very happy to have when I prepare this recipe is a set of tortilla bowl makers that my mother-in-law gave us a few years back. Mine are very similar to these here, and baking the bowls at home instead of buying the pre-made, fried versions is so easy to do, and so much healthier!
