What's better than an overstuffed taco filled to the brim with delicious slow cooked shredded beef?  Nothing!  That's right.  It doesn't get much better than this!

My house smelled SO delicious all day while this was cooking.  I'm going to share a little secret with you.  I broke the rules.  I did the one thing you shouldn't do while cooking in your slow cooker... I lifted the lid.  I admit it.  I did it on more than one occasion while this baby was cooking to perfection.  I couldn't help myself.  This darn beef smelled so good I couldn't hardly stay away.

Don't tell anyone, ok ;-)

Slow Cooker Shredded Beef Taco
1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 pounds beef (I used boneless chuck roast)
1 teaspoon chipolte chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 cup beef broth
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 chipolte pepper in adobo sauce, minced (I used 1 1/2 and it turned out to have quite a kick.  You might want to start with 1 the first time you make this dish)
1/2 large yellow onion
2 tablespoons minced garlic
Flour or corn tortillas

Take chuck roast out of fridge, unwrap and place on plate.  Let rest for 30 minutes on the counter.

Chop 1/2 of a yellow onion and set aside.

Combine the chipolte chili powder, cumin, and smoked paprika in a small dish.  Rub dry spices on all sides of your chuck roast.

Heat oil in large sautee pan over medium-high heat.

Brown all sides of the roast and then place in bottom of your slow cooker. 

Turn down your sautee pan to medium heat and add the beef broth to deglaze the pan.  Add your tomato paste and 1-2 chipolte peppers in adobo sauce.  Whisk together and let sauce heat until boiling.  Reduce heat to low and let simmer for a couple of minutes.

Place chopped onion and minced garlic on the top of the browned roast in your slow cooker.  Pour the pan sauce over the top of the roast, onions and garlic.  Cover with a lid and cook on low for 6-8 hours depending on the size of the roast you are using.  

I turned my roast about 1/2 way through so that the sauce could soak into the top 1/2 of the meat  while cooking :)

Remove the meat from the slow cooker and use 2 forks to shred when done.

Use a slotted spoon to remove the onions from the slow cooker and add to shredded beef mixture.
