Yummy to My Tummy: Shredded Beef Tacos

*Thanks so much to my dear friend, Jodi, for sharing this recipe!  We used the meat to make soft tacos with corn tortillas, but it would be equally great substituted for ground beef in other Mexican dishes.  The flavor was very good but also wasn't too spicy for my kids.  Best of all, it's easy!

Shredded Beef Tacos

1 (3-4 lb) beef chuck roast
1 can of beef broth
1 recipe of taco seasoning (from allrecipes.com)

Place roast in crock pot.  Pour beef broth over meat, then sprinkle taco seasoning generously on top.  Cook on low 6-8 hours.  Shred with two forks, then serve in corn tortillas with assorted toppings.

Taco Seasoning

1 T chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp black pepper

Mix all spices & store any unused portion in an airtight container.
