For these Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Beef Tacos, meat cooks all day in an awesome tomatillo salsa, then shredded, and topped with ripe avocado and tangy lime juice. So good!
My trial and error with slow cooker recipes continues. I’ve made so many now that are just…disappointing. Bland. Some are even down right awful.
Which means if I’m sharing a slow cooker recipe, we must have loved it. And we did! These Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Beef Tacos have it all going on.
No cream of soup. No soggy vegetables. Just juicy and delicious meat that’s been soaking in an incredible bath of flavor for eight hours. Awesome meal to come home to after a long day at work!
If you have a preference toward enchiladas, this beef can be put to great use in my Salsa Verde Shredded Beef Enchiladas, too!
And definitely check out my Salsa Verde Chicken Bake, which only requires a few pantry ingredients, 5 minutes of prep, and one pan! Perfect for busy weeknights.
