Easy Mexican Barbacoa Tacos
Slow cookers aren't just for Winter time! We love using our slow cooker when the weather is warm because, unlike an oven, it won't heat up your kitchen. These easy Barbacoa Tacos are the perfect Summertime slow cooker meal; spicy, savory and easy! This recipe makes 6 tacos but can easily be doubled.

6 corn tortillas
1 cup lettuce, shredded
1 small avocado
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
Place the chuck steak in your slow cooker.

Mix the broth, vinegar, tomato sauce, lime juice, and spices together. Pour the mixture over the steak.

To assemble the tacos, heat the tortillas and top each one with some meat lettuce, sliced avocado, the remaining onion, and crumbled feta. Serve immediately.
