I am all about the Crock Pot … year round. In fact, the day that I most recently made these Crock Pot Shredded Beef Tacos it was going to be 75 degrees and sunny.
But you know what’s awesome? It’s awesome that in eight hours dinner will be done. Like, done. I’ll lay some beef on the tortilla, toss on some Cotija cheese, cilantro, slaw and I am out the door to softball practice with our daughter.
I make slow cooker dinners in August, March, December, February and yes, even July. It’s awesome for meals like this!
And, afterall, that’s how you own the day, right?? Sure is!
These slow cooker shredded beef tacos are perfect for a busy day and I can’t wait for you to make them.
I just know you’ll love them.
