If you’re anything like me, you honestly believe that tacos should never be restricted to one day of the week.  Oh, if only every day could be Tuesday….

And it can!

A few weeks ago, I posted my recipe for slow cooker beef short rib gnocchi, and I got to thinking, this recipe is so easy, what else can I make with this.

When the weather gets hot and humid, as it has been for the past few days here in Toronto, there are two things I do not want to be doing:

1)     Slaving away in a hot kitchen; and
2)     Eating a hot, overly filling meal.

tacos - not just for tuesdays anymore!

This shredded beef taco recipe is not only light, but the slow cooker does most of the work for you – you don’t even have to be at home, much less in the kitchen!

This is perfect to serve you guests when entertaining for dinner in your backyard! It’s a great alternative to barbequing when its too hot be in front of the grill. Simply set up a station and let you guests fill their tacos to their liking! (even those fussy eaters will be pleased!
