We honestly think we could eat some type of taco every night – we just love ’em! We’ve filled them with shredded beef, vegetables, and even sweet potatoes. The beef for these tacos is made in a slow cooker. It becomes incredibly flavorful and tender.

How to Make Fire Roasted Tomato and Beef Tacos in a Slow Cooker

To make them, we rub boneless beef chuck with salt, cumin, and chili powder — take a look at our homemade version.

Slow Cooker Beef

Then we add it to our slow cooker along with sliced onions, garlic, jalapeño, bay leaves, canned chiles, canned fire roasted tomatoes, and beef broth. After six hours on low, the beef will look like this. See how it just falls apart? After shredding the beef, we add it back into the slow cooker along with the strained cooking liquid to keep moist.

You Will Need

  • 2 pounds boneless beef chuck
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder, see our homemade chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 jalapeño, halved with seeds removed
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chiles
  • One (14 ounce) can fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups beef broth

Taco toppings, such as shredded lettuce, cheese, onion, guacamole or sour cream.

Directions for making Slow Cooker Fire Roasted Tomato and Beef Tacos

  1. Stir the salt, chili powder, cumin, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Rub the spice mix into the beef on all sides.
  2. Add half of the onions to the bottom of a slow cooker then place the spice-rubbed beef on top. Add the remaining onions, garlic, jalapeño, bay leaves, chopped green chiles, diced tomatoes, and beef broth. Stir.
  3. Cover the slow cooker and cook until the beef is very tender — on HIGH for about 4 hours or on LOW for 6 to 8 hours.
  4. Transfer the meat to a bowl, and let it cool, then shred it with a fork. Strain the cooking liquid and skim off the fat that has collected at the surface.
  5. Taste the liquid and adjust with more salt. For a thicker broth, puree some or all of it.
  6. Add the liquid back to the slow cooker along with the shredded beef. Serve with taco shells or tortillas and taco toppings.
