Dr Oz Crockpot Tacos Recipe

2 tsp of black pepper
2 tsp of dried oregano (Look for Mexican oregano)
1/2 onion (cut into 4 pieces)
1 avocado, halved, pitted, sliced
Fresh cilantro sprigs
Sliced red bell peppers (optional item) You can also use carrots or any veggie you prefer.
Corn tortillas
Roasted tomatillo salsa

-Place the meat inside the Crockpot
-Place onions inside Crockpot
-Throw in the carrots, avocado, or any veggie you prefer
-Sprinkle in seasonings (oregano, cilantro, salt and pepper)
-Put the lid on the Crockpot and you’re done! (Be sure to keep the lid on the entire time)

Allow it to cook for at least 6 hours. (The more, the better. Not even the worst cook can burn a Crockpot meal—please don’t make me eat those words!) When done, allow it to cool down and then you shred it.

Warm up a soft shell taco in the microwave and put the meat onto the taco along with the tomatillo salsa. You’re ready to eat!
