Directions

  1. Stir the soup, chili powder and cumin in a 4-quart slow cooker. Add the beef and turn to coat.
  2. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 7 hours or until the beef is fork-tender.

  4. Spoon about 1/4 cup beef mixture into each taco shell. Top each with about 1 tablespoon cheese. Top with the lettuce and the sour cream, if desired.

getting ready to eat it but so far the meat is delicious. I just wanted to add that the meat reached 170 degrees in 4 hours on low. So I went ahead and rested the meat like the recipe says, and shredded. and kept on warm until dinnertime. I have only tasted the meat, but like I said, I think this will be a good keeper! I rated only 4 stars because I haven't actually tried it as a taco yet.

Following the recipe exactly, I found the meat rather tasteless. It definitely needed salt. The chuck roast didn't shred very well but that could just be the kind I got. This recipe wasn't horrible, but it didn't make it into my recipe box!

This is so flavorful and so easy! We use it in hard shell taco's, and also make burritos out of it. VERY yummy!!!!!
