If you don't mind messy tacos, pour a little extra sauce from your slow cooker over top. Reserve whatever sauce is left over—it makes a great base for chili. Customize the tacos with your favourite toppings, such as thinly sliced radishes, shredded cabbage or lettuce, diced avocado, shredded cheese, sour cream and lime juice.
