Slow Cooker Shredded Beef Tacos – Super Easy and So Delicious!

Slow Cooker Shredded Beef Tacos

Another one of our family favorites, it is simple to make, and done when you get home in the evening. Just place the beef, seasoning and salsa in the slow cooker and you’re off for the day. The meat is so tender, juicy and easy to shred. Served with fresh lettuce, tomato, avocados, cilantro and a little cheese. I make these really easy “mock” refried beans and Mexican rice to go with it, super simple, super easy!
