1 lb. lean ground beef
3 tbsp taco seasoning, I use this easy recipe

1 bell pepper, chopped
15 oz. can of crushed tomatoes
15 oz. can corn, drained
2 ½ c. water or low sodium chicken broth, I used one

HOW TO MAKE EASY SLOW COOKER TACO PASTA
Step 1: To a hot large skillet on medium-high heat, add the beef and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook the meat while stirring occasionally until no longer pink. To a slow cooker, transfer the beef.
Step 2: To the slow cooker, add the bell pepper along with the crushed tomatoes, salsa, corn, taco seasoning, and broth or water. Mix well.
Step 3: Cover the slow cooker and set it to cook for 5 to 6 hours on low or 2 to 3 hours on high.
Step 4: Toss in the pasta and continue to cook for another 10 to 20 minutes on high. Note that the cooking time of the pasta varies depending on the slow cooker, so I suggest to start checking for doneness at 10 minutes.
Step 5: Then, add the cheddar cheese and stir until blended.
Step 6: Serve the taco pasta immediately. Enjoy!
