Slow Cooked Chipotle Beef Tacos

Mexican food is one of our favorite type of meals to enjoy. Not only is it good, but it is usually a quick and easy meal.

One of our favorite Mexican meals is tacos and although we have a favorite taco seasoning that we enjoy, we also like to change it up with other types of fillings.

One of our new favorites is Chipotle Ground Beef Tacos. The Chipotle peppers in this give the meat not only some spiciness, but a nice smokey flavor.

I like to make this in the slow cooker to combine the flavors well, but you can easily do this on the stove.

  1. Made this for a taco potluck @ church for the youth ( we provided the meat and shells they brought toppings) and it was a huge success 🙂 Everyone loved it! But all of the recipes I’ve made from your site have been successful. We quadrupled the recipe and only had about 1.5 cups left. Well the cheapo in me couldn’t bear to waste any lol but I knew that wasn’t enough for tacos for 4 people. But it was enough for some chili. And fabulous Chili it was! I used the recipe for 4 Bean Chili for a Crowd from the Dinner Doctor cookbook.

    • I am so glad you enjoyed! It is a great meal for a potluck and easy to make a big batch. I will have to add it to chili next time I make it and have leftovers. I love that idea!

  2. Speaking of none processed, where did you get your taco shells? I got to the point to make my own because i can’t find any GMO free corn taco soft or hard tortias.

  3. This recipe looks so simple and delicious. I can’t wait to try it! I’ve included it in a roundup of Slow Cooker Taco Fillings I recently posted. You can find it here – https://www.lynnskitchenadventures.com/2011/09/slow-cooked-chipotle-beef-tacos.html.

  4. I have made this recipe several times now and we love it! However, I have yet to find chipotle peppers. A produce manager once told me that Serrano or pablano peppers were the closest thing he had, so that’s what we’ve been using. I’d really love to try it with chipotle peppers, though. Where do you find yours? We’re going to the farmer’s market later today, so thought we’d check there. Thanks for the great recipe!
