Absolutely! Just cook everything for 30 minutes. 
How long does taco salad last in the fridge? 
Taco salad will last up to 5 days in the fridge in an airtight container. You want to make sure you store vegetables, toppings, and meat in separate containers because they will get soggy if stored together.
Pro tip: Add homemade taco seasoning, chili powder, or garlic powder to the crockpot for extra flavor.
Additional toppings: Feel free to add sour cream, black beens, cheddar cheese, pinto beans, lime juice, avocado slices, black olives, etc. to your taco salad! The options are almost endless.
