I don’t use my crock pot as much as I should. I forget how much I love it until I pull it out and use it. Yesterday I threw all these ingredients together and my family went and enjoyed an afternoon in downtown Salt Lake City and when we arrived back home we had a delicious and healthy meal waiting for us (along with a wonderful smelling home). Aaaahhhh, crock pot, how I love you. Now on to the recipe. These tacos were so good that I’m pretty sure it’s a new family favorite. My kids raved! The recipe calls for a jalapeno, but because of my kids and their low tolerance of spicy foods I left it out. So it’s up to you if you want to include it. Hope you enjoy these!
