These Slow Cooker Chipotle Beef Tacos are a delicious and easy weeknight meal. Made with Mission Organics® White Corn Tortillas, it is a meal that your family will love, and you will feel good about serving.
Before we get to these Slow Cooker Chipotle Beef Tacos, I want to talk about love languages.
I have mentioned before that food is my love language.
I have always enjoyed seeing my family happy with the meals I create, even before I had kids of my own. I can still remember the thrill of hosting my first holiday celebration in my own home.
As unbelievable as that felt, nothing could have prepared me for how it would feel to be cooking daily for two boys who are nearing their teens.
They have always been appreciative when I make foods that they love, but now their appreciation has turned into an overwhelming exuberance.
They eat. A lot.
They come back for seconds.
They thank me. Over and over.
I am starting to think that food is their love language too.
Regardless, cooking for them and with them is a way we have stayed connected through their tween years, and I hope that it continues as we enter the teens. It really seems to mean something to them when I take the time to make a meal that I know they especially will love.
One of their favorites has always been tacos. It is a meal that when we lived in a city where I had access to all kinds of stores, we had every week.
We have been working hard to eat organic and stay away from GMOs, and I haven't always been able to find non-GMO tortillas close by. Because of this, tacos haven't been making an appearance on my regular menus.
I was so excited to hear that Mission Organics® has just come out with a complete line of organic tortillas and chips, which are available in grocery stores nationwide.
They come in three varieties, White Corn, Flour, and Whole-Wheat. I was able to pick them up on my regular grocery run in the tortilla section of Ingles. All of the tortillas are USDA Organic certified and non-GMO project verified, which is so important to me.
You know what else? They taste amazing! Just heat them up before serving for best results.
I love feeling good about giving the boys what they love!

I was very happy to find Mission tortillas gluten free this week. I had not seen them before and they are excellent. No doubt they will be good with this recipe!
These are perfect for taco Tuesday! I can't wait to make these next week.
I tend to cook mostly vegetarian but it is great to know about Mission organic tortillas which I can use in so many different ways. This taco recipe is one I will refer to on our next taco night.

OMG, those sound so amazing! Bonus points for making them in the crock pot. SUPAH easy!
Booyah! Not only do these look good, they are easy to make. That's the winning combo, in my book.
We have taco night at least once a week around here. It sounds like this recipe would be right up my alley.
I am seeing tacos everywhere and my mouth drools at every sight. I've been really craving Mexican food for quite some time now and your recipe looks exquisite!
Oh my goodness I am totally making this! I have a slow cooker just staring at me right now begging for something to be in it and this is going to be my answer for that.
I will have to try this recipe! We eat tacos at least once a week. It is such a fast and delicious meal to make. This will be a huge hit at our house.
I am totally adding to my rotation of meals for the next week. These look so tasty!
My boys are in love with tacos as well and I try to make it as often as possible. It would be so nice to switch from the usual tortillas to organic ones! I think this is awesome and I'm definitely getting a pack or two.

My husband always teases me because whenever we go to Mexican restaurants, I ALWAYS order tacos.
However, I usually go for the chicken tacos; these pictures make me want to try out the beef ones more often.
Perfect for busy days. I love my slow cooker because it frees up time for me that I could spend doing something else. My boys love Mexican food and this taco recipe is going to be another winner in this house. Thanks for sharing!

Our slow cooker is my best friend in the summer! These tacos look AMAZING! Will definitely give this recipe a try soon!
