My only complaint with chuck roasts as the go-to recipes tend to be slow cooker beef stew and instant pot pot roast. Those recipes are great, but sometimes you need a change. I also love my trusty stand by Instant Pot Taco Meat, as well.

That’s where these crockpot beef tacos come in. They are really easy to prepare and feed a crowd. We usually eat half of the batch and freeze the other half for a quick and easy meal on a busy night.
