I should actually call these Sunday Tacos. The delicious beef filling is made in the slow cooker and on Sundays the slow cooker is my best friend! 💕
We spend half of every Sunday in church and don't get home until well into the afternoon. We are literally starving when we get in the door, and it is so nice to just pop something into the slow cooker early Sunday morning and be greeted with a delicious smell when we get home!
I actually have three slow cookers. A larger one for when I am feeding a lot of people, and two smaller ones for when there is just the two of us. One is oval and one is round. I like the small oval one best of all because it is the right shape to fit all sorts of things which would fit awkwardly into a round slow cooker.
These tacos are so delicious and so easy to make. Simply pop the meat into the slow cooker, sprinkle with a special seasoning mix that you put together. (Failing that you could use a taco seasoning mix instead, but I like to make my own.)
A bit of beef stock is poured over along with the zest and juice of one lime. Cover and then turn on the slow cooker and let it do it's job. 8 hours later you will be rewarded with deliciously tender and flavourful beef. All you need to do is to shred it when you get in the door and heat the tortillas. Lay it all out on the table along with everyone's favourite toppings (which you can also get ready ahead of time) and let everyone dig in. Dinner is served! Oh boy these are some good! 💞

You don't have to wait until Sunday to enjoy these. I reckon your family would enjoy them any day of the week! They are delicious! Bon Appetit!
Note - I like to use the stand and stuff soft whole wheat tortilla boats for these. They are easy to hold and to eat! But you go and use whatever tortillas you like!
