These slow cooker turkey tacos are a great way to serve a big meal and not worry if someones going to have to ‘nuk their taco by the time they go back for seconds.
Nothing sparks random celebration quite like taco night (or tequila night… I don’t judge). With a plethora of easy fresh build your own toppings and the pile of perfectly seasoned meat drawing us in with it’s sweetly scented sirens song, the taco is a work of 100% custom art. Hand made for each person. At least around my table, mainly because I am too lazy to be making everyone their own dang taco.
So, get to making your taco. And let’s let this fiesta begin.
