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!
