Slow Cooker Korean Tacos with Slaw and Black Beans and Rice


Mmmm tacos. Who doesn't just love tacos. I have at least a dozen different taco recipes ranging from fish to these street taco inspired Korean style ones. Personally I love travelling to new places and trying new foods from a variety of countries and cultures. Don't get me wrong, I have no urge to try monkey brains or dancing squid but other than that I'm usually good to go.

You don't have to make all three of the things I have featured here but they do go very well together so you should. You can make a big bunch of it for hockey or tailgate parties and your friends will thank you as they rub their full food baby bellies.
