We are slowly approaching high tailing it into the end of April (Wait, what?.. seriously?) and with the end of April comes the inevitable heat of the summer.

Especially here in the Lone Star State.  But- this heat doesn’t exactly mean you can’t pull out the slow cooker for ease in your main meal making.  It surely doesn’t stop me. 

Plus, I’m still in the ‘new toy’ phase with my sorta kinda brand new crock.  I got her for Christmas and my life has never been the same. 

Okay.. so that may be a lie.  But, I do adore this kitchen appliance so very much. 

This recipe slightly resembles that of a favorite build-your-own-burrito (bowl) eatery. 

With my weird chicken issues- I usually stick to the all-natural shredded beef or carnitas.  Calorically, across the board of meat options, they are very similar. 

I made this for a week night meal for my Fireman and me- prepping the ‘sauce’ and meat the afternoon before and allowing it to sit in the marinade over night.  I just poured it all into the base of my slow cooker and stuck it in the fridge with the lid on it. 

While it did take up a massive amount of space in my fridge- it was for less than 24-hours, so I made due with the mess my fridge was in.  I refrained from opening the doors to look at it too much. 

My OCD habits would have put me in a mind spin. 

 This takes awhile to cook- about 10-12 hours.  I started mine on HIGH when I was leaving the house that morning at 7am, and my cooker goes straight to warm after the timer goes off- so I was set for the rest of the cooking time. 

Worth.  Every. Hour.. Minute.. Second.. it took    

I served these beef tacos with a black bean and wild rice salad (recipe to come soon!) and extra salsa at the table for sprinkling! 

Baja Beef Tacos

Yield: 8 servings

Serving Size: 2 tacos (4 ounces beef, 1/4 cup salsa, each)

Baja Beef Tacos

Ingredients

  • 1 can chiptole peppers with adobo sauce
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1 red onion, cut into chunks
  • 8 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 3-4 dry bay leaves
  • 2 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 4 limes)
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 2.5 pounds flat cut brisket, trimmed
  • 1 cup low-sodium beef broth
  • 2 cups chopped plum tomato
  • 1/3 c chopped yellow onion
  • 1/4 cup cubed avocado
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 (6-in) corn tortillas

Instructions

In a large food processor, combine chipotle peppers and sauce, cilantro, onion, garlic, cloves, salt, lime juice, and cider vinegar. Pulse until combined and broken down. Pour mixture into a slow cooker. Lay trimmed beef on top of this mixture, cutting beef into two pieces if necessary to fit well. Add stock and bay leaves. Gently move beef around to combine everything.

Cook on HIGH for 4 hours. Once finished, turn your slow cooker to the WARM setting and continue to cook for an additional 6 hours.

With two sets of tongs, pull the meat apart, shredding should be easy!

For the salsa, combine tomato, onion, avocado, and the next 4 ingredients (through pepper).

For serving, heat corn tortillas over a warmed skillet or in the microwave. Portion out two tortillas, layering about 2 ounces of beef (1/4 cup) on each tortilla. Top each with about 2 tablespoons salsa mixture.

  1. Looks great. I love how adding the pico makes a slow cooker recipe so fresh!

  2. Made these last night they were delicious! Thanks for the idea my family loved it!

    • GREAT! I’m so glad you and your family were able to enjoy it- you are right, they are so yummy! Toss some of the leftovers in with additional veggies and a couple scrambled eggs- and melt some cheese between two tortilla- hello breakfast :)
