Salsa Verde Beef Tacos {Slow Cooker}

Cinco de Mayo is on Monday. It is my FAVORITE “holiday”. I am a huge fan of Mexican food. We rarely eat it out, so I love going out on Cinco de Mayo for fajitas and margaritas. 
If you aren’t up for fighting the crowds, these Salsa Verde Beef Tacos are a great dish for Cinco de Mayo. This only has a few ingredients and tastes great! The roast cooks all day in the slow cooker. I don’t know about you, but I love easy slow cooker meals. 
We used flour tortillas for the tacos, but corn tortillas would be great too. Top the tacos with all your favorite toppings – lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, avocado, sour cream, cheese.
