Ever wish you could eat tacos for every meal? With a margarita, of course. And chips, guacamole, and queso, too! I’m sure that isn’t just me! Truth be told, I ordered these taco holders simply because we love tacos so much! Mexican food is always a hit in our house, and these Beef Barbacoa Tacos with toppings were the same. The taco toppings include Avocado Crema, Pickled Red Onions, and Feta. The coconut rice with black beans and cilantro was a crowd-pleasing side dish as well. This will be a repeat recipe, without a doubt. Major bonus: the beef is slow-cooked in the crock pot! Beef barbacoa is a little smoky and spicy, but since our 3 year old ate them, I’d say the flavor is not too strong.
These ingredients can be used for tacos, burritos, burrito bowls, and Mexican salads. Beef barbacoa would also be a killer nacho ingredient! I served ours on grilled corn tortillas and added a squeeze of lime and fresh cilantro. If you make tacos often, add this recipe to your next weekly meal plan. Oh, and order some taco holders to make the meal even more fun!
The Beef Barbacoa is mostly inspired by this delicious recipe by Gimme Some Oven. I tweaked it some, and included my version of her recipe below. I also included the recipes for Avocado Crema, Pickled Red Onions, and Coconut Rice.
I could eat this meal multiple times per week. And don’t be surprised if you see these taco holders in many future recipe posts. Who needs Chipotle when you have this meal?!
