Crock Pot Shredded Beef Tacos

The most requested meals at our house are those that are some kind of taco inspired dish. So you can imagine I need to come up with a lot of different recipes to change things up. These Crock Pot Shredded Beef Tacos have become my new favorite. 


The recipe happened kind of by accident. Once a month we head to BJ's to buy the bulk of our meat when we are able to fit it into our budget. It had been a long day of shopping so when I separated the meat to freeze I forgot to write on the freezer bag what was in it. Normally I can figure out what it is but this particular time, we only had smaller bags so I had to ram it all in. 



So fast forward to a day I decided we were going to have steak on the grill. I grabbed the package of steaks out of the freezer. As it thawed I soon realized I had grabbed a smaller beef roast. Ok, now what am I going to do with this?  So I grabbed the correct package of steaks out the freezer to thaw (cause this moma wanted steak) and put the roast back in the fridge until the next day. 



I grabbed the crock pot and started loading it on up. I wasn't in the mood for our normal Crock Pot Roast Beef (one of my favs!) so I let the wheels turn in my head trying to figure out what to make. As I searched the pantry to see what I could throw together, it was like an ah-ha moment when I saw the can of rotel. Tacos it is! 


With just a few simple ingredients, that beef roast turned into something ah-mazing! Perfectly seasoned and full of a ton of flavor. Set out all your toppings and let them build their own. There were thumbs up all around. When tacos are involved, fun just happens!! (And those leftovers make a great topping for nachos...just sayin')




Crock Pot Shredded Beef Tacos


1 onion, chopped
2 1/2 lb. beef roast, trimmed of fat 
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1  can of Rotel tomatoes (regular or mild)
Small flour tortillas

Cook 8 hours on low in your crock pot. Once done, shred with two forks. Add into your tortilla and add your favorite toppings. 

Add your favorite toppings - salsa, pico de gallo, guacamole, sour cream, shredded cheese, chopped cilantro, lettuce, tomato, etc.
