When I go to a Mexican restaurant, and they give the choice of ground beef or shredded beef I will pick the shredded every time.  There is just something about the way that shredded beef holds on to the flavors that I just love.  I make Shredded Beef Burritos in my crock pot, and have also done the meat that way to make Homemade Shredded Beef Enchiladas with Homemade Red Sauce.  I decided I would try baked tacos that way, too.

Best part, the crock pot does most of the work for you. Right before you eat, fill the shells and bake them for a bit, sprinkle them with your favorite toppings and serve them up right out of the baking dish!

Switch up your Taco Tuesday with this new recipe, and watch your family smile– I know that mine did!
