Cinco de Mayo:Have A Taco Fiesta!

Tacos are a casual, partial messy, and fun to assemble-in short, they make great party food. Celebrating Cinco de Mayo? Have a Taco Fiesta with a Taco Bar! Cook your beef, pork or chicken, rice and have plenty of corn or flour tortillas along with all the fillings and condiments.  I decided on throwing a beef chuck roast in the slow cooker for a delicious Family Taco Fiesta.

Shredded Beef Tacos


2 pounds beeef (boneless chuck roast)
1 1/2 cups tomatoes, chopped
1 medium red onion
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped (leave seeds if you want it hotter)
1 cup pineapple, chopped
1 Tablespoon cilantro, chopped
2-3 slices fresh lime
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 Tablespoon Taco seasoning
1 1/2 cups water
Flour Tortillas
Favorite taco toppings – lettuce, tomato, onion, avocado, lime, cilantro, etc.


  • Place first 10 ingredients in slow cooker. Cover with lid. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  • Remove beef from slow cooker. Shred with fork.
  • Place beef on flour tortilla and top some of the mixture from the slow cooker and with your favorite toppings.
  • Serve with black bean and corn salad.
