Crock Pot Shredded Beef Tacos Recipe

While I grew up eating what I now refer to as the American version of a beef taco, I found as an adult that I much prefer the milder flavor and taste of a traditional shredded beef taco.  This Crock Pot Shredded Beef Tacos recipe is one I developed in an effort to satisfy that craving without having to locate a local authentic Mexican food truck.  While they are quite simple, they are also very rich in flavor and perfect for a quick evening meal when you’ve had a long day at work.

We absolutely love this recipe. There aren’t a lot of recipes where my kids go back for seconds and thirds, but this one they do. Best of all, it is so easy to make that it’s a perfect choice for a weeknight meal.

One of our favorite twists with these Crock Pot Shredded Beef Tacos is to serve them with a bit of Feta cheese instead of the classic shredded cheddar you are familiar with.  Not only does it give a bit of bite but it is also creamy and goes well with the richness of the beef.

How do you prefer your tacos?
