We eat a lot of different Mexican inspired dishes around here.
If it’s not plain ‘ol tacos, then it’s one of our many other recipes, like the popular baked taco salad, taco pasta, or homemade hamburger helper-crunchy taco. There is just something about the flavors of cumin, paprika, and chipolte that we all love.
Why these Crock Pot Shredded Beef Tacos Rock!
It’s easy to toss the ingredients into the crock pot the morning of your busy day, and come home to the house smelling like a Mexican restaurant. You’ll thank me later – Promise! I like using this crock pot because the inner pot is dishwasher safe. Of course I always use liners to make clean up even easier.
What else can you do with this shredded beef?
This meat is so juicy and flavorful, you’ll love it for burrito bowls and stacked on top of nachos. A twist on a way to use it? Pile it on a baked potato, and load it up with a nacho cheese sauce. The cheese sauce from this recipe would be perfect.
This meat is perfect for game day gatherings, holidays, and pot lucks! Use it on a build your own taco or nacho bar.
