Slow Cooked Taco Casserole

We are obviously on a taco type kick around our house! Found another crock pot recipe that I tried out this past weekend and it was a winner... Very thick and hearty. I took out the corn tortillas - I don't really care for the gummy texture that they become when they are baked or slow cooked in something, but followed the rest of the recipe. We topped ours with corn chips to give it a little crunch and we all loved it!

1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 small onion, chopped

1/2 cup chicken broth
