Double Cooking Makes Southwest Crock-Pot Tacos Flavorful
I had half a beef tip roast in the freezer that was a perfect fit in my smaller Crock-Pot. I was sure that paired with the sauce, it would be an amazing dinner. I let it cook all day, shredded the beef, then let it simmer again in the juices for about an hour. Southwest Crock-Pot Tacos is the best taco dinner I’ve ever had! The sauce was mild, with a faint bit of heat at the back of your tongue. I now have a new favorite taco seasoning!
Convenience Items Make Southwest Crock-Pot Tacos Even Easier
Top this meat with your favorite taco fixings for an awesome dinner. Many of the fixings you can get at the store pre-chopped, for a super-easy dinner in a jiffy. Check the produce section of your favorite grocery store for chopped tomatoes, onions, pico de gallo, and even lettuce. Take advantage of the convenience items to make your dinner faster to spend more time with your family.
- 2 lb beef roast
- 2 pkgs Frontera New Mexico Taco Skillet Sauce, any flavor
- Taco shells, hard or soft
- your favorite taco toppings
- Place the beef roast in the Crock-Pot and pour the sauce over the top. Cover and cook on low, 6-8 hours, until the roast is tender.
- Lift the roast out and let cool 5 minutes. With two forks, shred the beef with the grain, removing any fat. Return the lean meat back to the Crock-Pot and let simmer on low another 30 minutes to an hour.
- Assemble your tacos as you like. Enjoy!

I spent months looking for this sauce and my Grocery store finally carries it! Just made this last night and I have to say it was amazing! i used the sauce that says for ground beef- mild red chili and cumin. I didn’t think there was anything to top your chicken tacos but you did 🙂 My dad was here visiting and he liked them too. Also note I just used a cheaper cut of roast and it was still super tender and juicy . thanks again
