I don’t know about you, but I love my crock pot. It’s perfect for work days – just put it in the pot, go to work and just assemble – and today, It’s Tacos!
Here’s what you need…..
- 1 ½ pounds top blade beef roast
- 2/3 cup of cold, brewed coffee
- 1 Tablespoon chipotle chili powder
- 1 Tablespoon regular chili powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 ½ teaspoons of salt
- 8 Corn tortillas
Mix the spices with the coffee. Place the meat in the crock pot and pour the coffee mixture over it. Cook on low for 7-8 hours, until the top is dark and the meat falls apart.
Either fry the tortillas into crispy shells (hard taco) or heat them in the microwave (soft tacos)
Prepare the condiments you like to use. I use Mexican onions (also known as Spring onions), cilantro, shredded pepper jack (not shown) and avocado. You can use salsa, cheddar, whatever you like on your tacos.
Remove the meat from the pot and shred with a fork (save the liquid to cook beans – I usually freeze it)
Build your tacos and enjoy! Makes four servings of two tacos each –
