Crockpot Mexican Roast Tacos: Low Carb and Trim Healthy Mama S

This super easy recipe for Mexican roast tacos is low carb and trim healthy mama s

I have been working on filling my freezer and making one for dinner this month. This is one of those simple recipes. I call these types of recipes dump recipes but that doesn’t sound appealing.  It does describe it perfectly though. You dump everything in your crockpot, or freezer bag, and you’re done. How easy is that?

You can use this meat for tacos, taquitos, enchiladas, salads, and more!

This beef taco meat is versatile. Tacos with low carb tortillas are usually the first night. But this meat would make excellent beef enchiladas! I also made some taquitos. I used low carb tortillas and rolled them with the meat inside. I sprayed them with non-stick spray and air fried them for around 10 minutes. If your meat is warm, that will prevent the tortillas from getting burnt.

You can use your crockpot or pressure cooker.

I have a Ninja Foodi (affiliate link) and it makes things easier. Originally this was going to be a crockpot recipe, but we were running errands and were gone a lot longer than we had planned. I ended up having to use the pressure cooker. I cooked on high pressure for an hour with a quick release of pressure. If you have time, slow cook this roast all day. How ever you cook it, it will be delicious!!
