Mexican Shredded Beef Tacos for a Crowd

This shredded beef tacos Crock Pot recipe is one of our favorites. I love that is simmer on low for 8 hours and then the whole family can design their own taco just the way they want it. And, it's a huge bonus that these can be wrapped up and taken on the go. I need recipes like this in my life and I think you do, too!
