Why are these tacos so stress-free? Well, because your slow cooker does all the work for you and we think that's just great! After working hard all day, you don't want to stand over a hot stove to make dinner, so enjoy a delicious meal with no stress.

Serves: 6
Cooking Time: 7 hr

What You'll Need:

1/2 cup chopped onions
1 (2-1/2- to 3-1/2-pound) bottom round roast
1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
12 hard corn taco shells
2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup sour cream

What To Do:

Place onion in a 4-quart slow cooker, then roast on top.

In a medium bowl, combine tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, salt, and black pepper; mix well and pour over roast.

Cover and cook on high setting 7 to 8 hours, or until meat pulls apart with a fork.

Turn off slow cooker and shred beef by pulling apart with 2 forks. Stir beef mixture and allow to sit 5 minutes.

Fill taco shells with a layer of beef, then evenly distribute lettuce, tomato, cheese, and top each with a dollop of sour cream. Serve immediately.


Slow cookers really do save time and cut down on the stress of what to make for dinner.
