I have been obsessed with the crockpot lately, especially now that we going into the colder months! The crockpot makes everything so much easier when it comes to dinner because you can throw all of your ingredients into it and let everything cook for a few hours or all day. These crockpot barbacoa tacos have been on of my favorite recipes to make in the crockpot. Seriously, I made them twice last week because I love them so much.
The best part about this recipe it that you always have leftovers. One night I made these tacos for my family and another night I made it for a UCF fight with some blueberry margaritas. This crockpot barbacoa taco recipe reminds of birria tacos since you have some extra broth afterwards. I personally love to double the sauce recipe so there is even more broth which I drizzle on top of the tacos. Or I will dip the tortillas in the broth and than heat them up in a pan which is basically a birria taco. If you are taco lover like me than you MUST try this recipe!
These toppings are all optional and not needed if you do not want them. I personally just like to add onions, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime juice since the meat has so much flavor.
