Crockpot Dr. Pepper Beef Tacos

Crockpot Beef Tacos made with Dr. Pepper and Chipotles

These crockpot Dr. Pepper beef tacos are a real crowd pleaser. Just to warn you, this recipe makes a lot! If you don’t have a lot of people to feed, you can always freeze the leftovers since they freeze well.

I love making these crockpot Dr. Pepper beef tacos with a side of Mexican street corn salad. Despite, the Dr. Pepper these beef tacos aren’t overly sweet, they’re a little smoky and spicy thanks to the chipotles. If you want to up the spice level you could always throw in a seeded jalapeño.

This is a great recipe for a party, especially a Superbowl party, or for tailgating.

  1. I’m intrigued by this. How “dr peppery” are they? Lol. I know you said it’s not too sweet. I HATE Dr Pepper with a passion. (I know, weirdo) but my husband loves it, so he might like this.
