Chipotle Beef Tacos

I do not yet have a school-age children, but I've been told by various family members and friends that the slow cooker is an indispensable tool during the start of school.  You add your ingredients early in the day and allow them to slowly become more and more delicious.  In my case, I have a squirmy 7 month old and not a lot of time on my hands.  SO slow cooker it is.

Tacos are such an amazing dinner. So versatile and easy to whip up for the whole family.  You can prep everything early in the day and have it ready to go by the time the first family member asks you "Whats for dinner?"  

Chipotle Beef Tacos

10 minutes of Prep
30 minutes of Cook time
10 minutes of Bake time
8 Servings

·       2 lbs. Chuck Beef
·       1 tsp. Salt
·      8 Corn Tortillas
·      1 7 oz Chipotle Pepper in Adobo Sauce can
·      1/2 Large White Onion
·      1/2 Large Red Onion
·      Sour Cream
·       1 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
·       1 tsp. Salt
·       1/2 tsp. Pepper

First brown your beef until it's cooked on both sides.  Add to slow cooker.

 Then take your red and white onions, slice thinly. Add on top of the chuck roast.
Then take this bad boy right here. 

Add that on top, with the garlic powder, salt, and pepper.  Pour red wine over everything to combine. Add top and turn heat to low.

Cook for 7-8 hours.

Add to taco shells and top with sour cream.  I also added some corn, extra red onion, and tomato on top.
