Crock pot meal-pork tacos & chili lime corn


Today I got to go on tv and make a crock pot meal for FOX 13’s ‘Good day Utah’ show. Everyone was so lovely and despite some technical difficulties it was still a great show.  I made an all in one meal for those hot summer days- pork tacos and grilled corn in one  crock pot so you can avoid the hot BBQ and sweaty kitchen. I wish I would have gotten more photos while I was there but luckily it is all on film !

After the show we went outside and had a picnic in the grassy area with all the yummy foods.  I hope you all enjoy my recipes, try  this no fuss meal yourself!

  1. mmmm how yummy. I love tacos. I will have to try to crock pot the meat first. There is something about beans and corn that go so well with tortillas. Thanks for the recipe! 🙂
